The incident occurred within 24 hours of an attack on a Tasmanian woman in the same area.

There's been a second shark attack in less than twenty-four hours at The Whitsundays region in North Queensland.

The father came with her on the RACQ CQ Rescue helicopter.

Barwick was badly hurt on the upper right leg, ambulance officials said, and a doctor who was on a nearby boat attended to her until rescuers arrived by helicopter.

"The patient's injuries today are again a shark attack bite to the patient's thigh area, with significant blood loss", Eastwick told reporters in Mackay, where the girl is in a serious condition in hospital.

"At approximately 1343 we received a notification that a young child had been bitten by a shark in the Whitsunday Islands", she said.

The latest attack comes just one day after a woman was bitten by a shark.

The 46-year-old suffered significant leg and torso injuries after being bitten at Cid Harbour, off Whitsunday Island, about 5pm on Wednesday.

Family Based Care chief executive Doug Doherty said Ms Barwick and Craig were regular visitors to the popular tourist destination in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef.

Ms Barwick, a mother of two, is in a critical condition in Mackay Base Hospital where she remains on Thursday after overnight surgery.
