Qld Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk says federal parliament must quickly enact same sex marriage laws.

The Queensland premier says federal parliament must immediately enshrine in law Australia's support for same-sex marriage.

"The decision by the majority of Australians to support marriage equality through their responses to the Turnbull Government's $122 million postal survey should be heeded by the federal parliament and their will put into law," Annastacia Palaszczuk said in a statement on Wednesday.

"My government recognised this truth when we restored civil partnership ceremonies, removed by the LNP government, in Queensland in 2015. We didn't require a postal survey to do that."
