Gympie police received a tip-off around 6pm that the stolen vehicle was parked near the Gympie Aquatic Centre.

"We were looking into a stolen vehicle when it decamped from police this afternoon," Sgt Scott Poole said.

"At this stage the juveniles are still on the run, I believe there was four in the car."

A witness posted footage to Facebook of the white Nissan car fleeing into a garden bed to escape capture.

"One of the offenders is known to police, but we're still looking for them," Sgt Poole said.

"We weren't able to give chase to the offenders."
