A police spokeswoman said the man was able to walk away from the vehicle after it went off the cliff on School St.
He was taken to nearby Rockhampton Hospital in a stable condition.
Four police crews, two ambulances and a fire truck were all tasked to the scene.
An ambulance statement said the car plunged 30m.
Meanwhile, a motorcyclist was thrown 15m from his bike after crashing into a stump on North Stradbroke Island overnight.
