North Queensland is continuing to experience dozens of minor aftershocks following a 5.2-magnitude earthquake on Saturday.
Residents from Mackay through to the Whitsundays and Townsville reported feeling the tremor, recorded 60 kilometres west of Bowen just after 3:30pm AEST.
It was Queensland’s largest earthquake since 1935.
The tremor was felt throughout several towns but police said there were no reports of damage or injuries.
There has been a number of aftershocks, with one registering a magnitude 4.
Goescience Australia says the tremor is unrelated to the earthquakes that have devastated Japan and New Zealand in recent months.
Seismologist Steven Tatham says aftershocks are likely continue over the next few days but most residents will not feel anything.
“The pattern normally is the aftershocks diminish in magnitude and in frequency and we’re seeing that in the records that those magnitudes are starting to fall away,” he said.
