Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk says she is "thrilled" to bring her entire cabinet and the department directors-general to Mount Isa on Monday.

"We know how important Mount Isa is, it's resource rich and it's got great people," Ms Palaszczuk said.

"We'll be governing the state from there but also it's a great opportunity to talk to locals and understand more about the local community."

Ms Palaszczuk said that on Tuesday the government would host a summit on the North West Minerals Province.

"We're also planning for the mayors of the region to come down as well," she said.

"There'll also be a community reception on the Monday evening."

Ms Palaszczuk said the visit was a wonderful opportunity for people to bring issues to the government.

"If people want to see a minister about a particular issue I'm more than happy to try to facilitate that," she said.

"This is about the government listening and delivering for the region."

It follows a similar cabinet meeting in Maryborough earlier this month.
