Local police launched a search on foot, while Queensland Government Air Helicopter and fixed wing aerial searches combed the area from the sky.
The large SOS was spotted from the sky and the group were located safe and well about 11.30am today.
Queensland Police said when travelling it was important to take precautions, notify friends and family of their plans so if they don’t make it an alarm can be raised.
The group are believed to have left the car in search of assistance, but police recommend staying with your broken down vehicle.
“People who wander off to seek help run the risk of perishing if they do not have the adequate supplies or knowledge on how to stay safe,” Acting Senior Sergeant Rob Morris said.
He also advised travellers to carry food and water in case of emergency.
