The sister of one of four university students killed in a horror crash in the Gold Coast hinterland has shared her regret over their last interaction.

Townsville woman Katrina McKeough, 21, was travelling with friends Courtney Smith, 20, Kirsten Van Gorp, 22, and Lochlan Parker, 20 when Ms Van Gorp lost control while turning a bend and collided with an oncoming ute.

The accident happened in Advancetown, on Nerang Murwillumbah Road near the intersection with Beechmont Road at around 1pm on Saturday.

"I loved my sister so much and I feel wretched knowing that the last time we spoke, we fought. Badly," Katrina's sister shared in a heartbreaking Facebook post.

"We never made peace with the argument and now we never will.

"All I can say is to keep your loved ones close and to cherish every moment."

Police said the crash scene was horrific and first responders were offered counselling for what they saw.

"Any accident involving one deceased is horrific enough let alone four persons being deceased in the one accident," Queensland Police's Brett MacGibbon told 9News.

The ute driver was taken to Gold Coast University Hospital with minor injuries.

The stretch of road is known for accidents and a Forensic Crash Unit team is investigating the crash.
