Couple taking selfie on cliff plunge to their deaths

An Australian man has died after falling from a 30 metre-high wall in Portugal.

His mother told the paper that the couple had left Australia in January and had attended a wedding in Portugal in recent weeks.

Their bodies were found by a beach cleaner on Tuesday morning and a cell phone was found at the top of the wall.

"It is with a heavy heart I have to announce that Michael and Louise were taken from us in a tragic accident in Portugal", Ms Kearns wrote, alongside a photo of the couple.

It is believed that the pair fell off the wall between 1am and 6am local time.

According to the Portuguese newspaper, Correio da Manhã, the pair died on the Praia dos Pescadores (Fishermen's Beach) near popular resort Ericeira.

The captain of the port of Cascais, 30 kilometres west of Lisbon, said he believed the couple fell while trying to take a selfie.

Mr Kearns was a fly-in fly-out (FIFO) worker at Chevron's Wheatstone project in the Pilbara, Western Australia, and enjoyed diving.
