A woman has been airlifted to hospital following a three hour rescue at the Beechworth Gorge.
Paramedics, firefighters, SES volunteers and police were called to the scene off Gorge Road about 3.30pm on Sunday.
The 42-year-old, who isn't from the local area, slipped about five metres down rocks onto a rock pool ledge.
She injured her leg.
A large scale rescue operation was required to stabilise the woman.
She was winched out of the gorge in a stable condition about 6.30pm before being airlifted to Wangaratta hospital.
Beechworth Sergeant Mal Clarke said the area could be dangerous.
"Any visitors down there should use caution," he said.
"The rocks are very slippery."
An Ambulance Victoria spokeswoman said the woman had injuries to her leg.
The injuries are not considered to be life threatening.
A large number of emergency service workers were involved in the operation.
