The driver of the vehicle, a 63-year-old Western Australian man, and one of the rear passengers, a 69-year-old South Australian man, died at the scene.
A 54-year-old Western Australian woman and a 68-year-old South Australian sustained significant injuries and were transported to the Nambour General Hospital.
The Queensland police Forensic Crash Unit is investigating.
