Gable Tostee has brushed off media questions outside court after being cleared of murdering New Zealander Warriena Wright.

Tostee emerged from Brisbane's Supreme Court into a throng of media where he stood beside his lawyer Nick Dore.

His lawyer read a brief statement saying Tostee was relieved the matter was behind him and his client would be focusing on his future.

For a moment it appeared Tostee would also speak, as he stood still and listened to media questions. He then walks off after he is asked if he wants to thank his supporters.

The 30-year-old was accused of driving New Zealand tourist Wright to her death by threatening and intimidating her in the early hours of August 8, 2014, after the pair had met through dating app Tinder.

The trial in Brisbane's Supreme Court lasted more than a week, with 22 people giving evidence.
