NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has claimed victory in Saturday's state election after Labor leader Michael Daley conceded defeat.

Ms Berejiklian has thanked the people of NSW for re-electing her government - and for voting for a woman with a long surname to be premier.

"First and foremost, I want to thank the people of this great state for having confidence in me and my government," she said after claiming victory in Saturday's election.

"My team and I will continue to work our guts out to make sure this state and its people continue to ensure that we have the best opportunities on this planet."

She said her priorities would be to continue to provide a strong budget for the projects, infrastructure and services for the state.

Thousands of Liberal supporters - many chanting "four more years" - and Prime Minister Scott Morrison and former PM John Howard were on hand for the victory celebrations.


The coalition was returned for a third term on Saturday, but it's still to be determined whether it will be able to govern in its own right or will depend on the three expected independents.

Ms Berejiklian thanked her family, staff, volunteers and party workers for their efforts to return the government.

She also praised Nationals leader and Deputy Premier John Barilaro and Treasurer Dominic Perrottet for their efforts.
