Two people who called for help after "getting stuck at the top of a waterfall" near Queenstown this afternoon have been rescued by volunteer firefighters.

A police spokesman said the pair rang for help about 4.20pm after becoming concerned for their safety in Wye Creek, a valley in The Remarkables range about 15km south of Frankton.

A helicopter was put on standby to rescue the pair, but firefighters walked up a track and guided them to safety about 5.30pm.

The spokesman did not know the gender of the two people or where they were from.
