A man has died and another rescued after they were thrown from their boat into the water in central Queensland.

Gladstone police were called to Awoonga Dam at 8.19pm on Thursday night.

In a statement, Queensland Police said water police, helicopter and local SES volunteers located a 42-year-old man floating in the water and pulled him to safety.

He was taken to Gladstone Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

A 68-year-old man was found dead a short time later.

Investigations are under way, and a report will be prepared for the coroner.
