More than 900 Queenslanders have been diagnosed with gonorrhoea so far this year, a more than 50 per cent jump compared to 12 months ago.
Data obtained by AAP from Queensland Health shows there were 945 notifications for the sexually transmitted infection (STI) between January 1 and March 6 in 2017, compared to 624 for the same period in 2016.
Infectious syphilis rates were also tracking higher compared to a year ago.
It comes after some sexual health advocates warned Queenslanders to take greater precautions to protect themselves when using dating apps.
In 2016, gonorrhoea notifications in the state jumped by a staggering 32 per cent, while chlamydia cases rose by 7.5 per cent.
Symptoms of gonorrhoea can include pain when urinating, cramps or pain in the lower abdomen for women and swollen testes for men.
