The Greater Brisbane area was ordered into a three-day lockdown in an attempt to suppress a growing coronavirus cluster of seven cases.

Four of those cases were announced on Monday, all of which are likely close contacts of three existing and historical cases.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk says the infected people have been out in the community and travelled to central Queensland and northern NSW.

To stem transmission, Brisbane, Logan, Moreton Bay, Ipswich and Redlands are in lockdown until Thursday evening - an area with about 2.5 million people.

People will only be allowed to leave home to do essential work, shop, care for people or exercise.

"I didn't sleep last night so I think I am very worried, I'm very concerned," Ms Palaszczuk told reporters.

"But we've done it before, we've got through this together, and I'm sure that if everyone does the right thing we will be able to get through it.”

Ms Palaszczuk said the lockdown would be reviewed on Thursday, ahead of the Easter holiday break this weekend.

States and territories introduce travel restrictions

In the hours before the lockdown came into effect on Monday, thousands of travellers attempted to flee the city, crowding the airport and causing a gridlock on roads surrounding the city.

Those on holiday in Brisbane trying to return to their home state have had to rethink their plans, as some states and territories shut their borders to the sunshine state.

Victoria has declared Greater Brisbane a "red zone" from 6pm AEDT under its travel permit system.

All Queenslanders will be locked out of Western Australia from midnight, unless they have an exemption, after the McGowan government moved to reintroduce a hard border.

South Australia imposed a hard border on Monday afternoon, banning entry from Greater Brisbane and requiring the testing and isolating of those who had arrived since March 20.

Restrictions have also been imposed in the ACT, Tasmania and the Northern Territory.
