Attempts to shift 17-year-olds out of Queensland's adult prisons into youth detention centres have been delayed, prompting criticism from advocates that the "11th hour" decision will leave children languishing in adult jails.

Long-awaited reforms to youth justice take effect on Monday, meaning 17-year-olds charged from now to be dealt with in the youth justice system.

But new Child Safety Minister Di Farmer revealed capacity constraints meant the process of moving teens already in adult prisons to youth detention centres would be delayed.

"Modelling that we've seen to date indicated that we did have sufficient capacity in the youth detention centres, however, I do not feel confident that this is now the case," she said.

"Seventeen-year-olds currently in prison will stay in the adult prison until the director-general of my department determines that it is appropriate to do so and safe to do so."
