A man has been charged with murder after allegedly ploughing his four wheel drive into a Far North Queensland, Australia, funeral home packed with mourners.

A 48-year-old woman was killed and more than a dozen others were injured on Friday morning when the car ploughed into the home at Kowanyama, on the west side of Cape York, about 10.30am.

A service was underway when the crash occurred.
