The state government is finalising its legislative agenda a day before Parliament sits for the first time since the Liberals gained power.

Deputy Premier Jeremy Rockliff said a short time ago that details on which legislation would be tabled during the first week would be released after Cabinet meets today.

He refused to name any items on this week's parliamentary agenda, saying only that each piece of new legislation would be designed to create jobs.

Legislation to unpick the forestry peace deal is expected to be among the first tabled, but it's unclear if it will be debated straight away.

Tomorrow's ceremonial opening of Parliament will take place in the Legislative Council chambers where the Governor will address members from both houses.
