THE warm-up to the #thisisqueensland Instameet on Saturday has been a winner.

You have shown us some of your favourite spots across the region by tagging us @onelocaltoanother on Instagram.

The Rockhampton Zoo, Rosslyn Bay, Gracemere and the caves just outside Rocky are now there for the world to see.

But the real event is finally here.

In what organisers hope will become the world's biggest Instameet, keen snappers are being asked to simultaneously share thousands of images of Queensland visitor experiences using the #thisisqueensland tag.

Rockhampton Instagrammers can capture their region's best tourism assets in this social media event, which is designed to showcase Queensland to the world, tomorrow (Saturday, Oct 4).

It could be your favourite sunset spot.

Maybe it's your hideaway for a camping weekend, the waterfall you hike to or the beach you chill out at.

Tourism Minister Jann Stuckey said Instagram was a powerful social media platform with more than 200 million monthly users world-wide.

She said high-profile digital influencers would join everyday Queenslanders and tourism operators to send a collective nod to the State.

"The Queensland Instameet will involve people coming together to connect, explore and collectively sell our tourism assets to the world by posting authentic and compelling photos to inspire others to visit," she said.

"We will showcase our world-class visitor experiences; from watching the sunset on Hamilton Island's One Tree Hill through to stargazing in the outback or snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef."
