A new political landscape will greet Queensland as it enters a new month, with Labor set to take back power after just three years.
Three seats, Mansfield, Maryborough and Whitsunday remained undecided on Saturday night, but Labor was expected to pick up enough to form a majority government.
Even if Labor falls short, it is likely to have support of both Katter Australia Party and independent Peter Wellington in a hung parliament.
It was a result no George Street player had predicted, with even Labor insiders conceding a win was almost impossible at the outset of the campaign.
LNP members quickly dubbed Annastacia Palaszczuk the "accidental Premier", noting that not even federal leader Bill Shorten had expected the Inala MP to pull off what has become a political comeback for the history books.
While the LNP looks back at what went wrong, with many pointing to federal issues, potentially signalling the end of Tony Abbott's prime ministership, Labor, which campaigned on a "no asset sales" and "united Queensland" platform, which was light on policy detail, was looking forward.
"One thing is for sure, we won't be moving into the Executive Building within hours of the result," one source said.
"You may have noticed that she [Ms Palaszczuk] said grace, dignity and humility a bit during the campaign. I think she is on notice that we will have to follow that. We've seen what happens."
Given the shock result, cabinet positions are still unsure, with Ms Palaszczuk now bound by her promise to reduce the ministry from 19 to 14 spots.
LNP government decisions will now come under review, potentially placing some projects, like Queen's Wharf, in doubt, but Labor insiders were keen to push that no decisions had been made yet.
State sanctioned ceremonies for same-sex couples are expected to be reinstated, while acting head of the Crime and Corruption Commission, Ken Levy, has been put on notice.
Beyond that, Labor will have to walk a tightrope, between their promise to be economically responsible and maintain the LNP's fiscal spending, and improve frontline services, without off-loading the state's assets.
Having run a campaign on "modest" campaign promises, many are now wondering how Labor will pull it off, without increasing the state's debt.
They have committed to consolidating the state's power assets with no forced redundancies, something which was investigated under the Bligh Government, but ultimately discarded.
"It's going to be tough and we will be feeling our way forward," one Labor staffer, who didn't want to be named said.
"But I think we all know we have to just keep talking to people. A lot of mistakes were made during the last government that we can learn from."
Ms Palaszczuk, speaking to "true believers" in Richlands, part of a move to take Labor back to its roots, said she wanted to "put the past three years behind us".
"Who would have thought three years ago, we would have been making history tonight," she said.
Given the disbelief from the LNP camp, certainly no one from that side of the fence believed they would be relegated to a one-term wonder.
"We have a lot of thinking to do," one said.
