Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has told Adani not to expect any financial help from the state for its Carmichael mine.

Queensland's government has warned Indian mining giant Adani it must finance the controversial Carmichael coal mine on its own.

The federal government on Tuesday approved the expansion of Abbot Point port, which is intended to service the proposed Carmichael mine, prompting Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk to sternly tell Adani not to expect any financial assistance from the state.

"There will be no taxpayers' money going towards this project," she said.
