As I type, I'm recording a prelim. Mw6.6 just offshore of NW WA, Australia.
Tho this is not the biggest Australian quake ( which also happened in the state of Western Australia), it is the
largest one I have recorded so far.




cheers

Is one referring to the Exmouth earthquake in 1906?

I vaguely remember one in Gippsland, Victoria, in 1966, mainly because it didn't affect Melbourne.

Interesting perspective on earthquakes/seismicity in Victoria

and more recently

More historical
