A small offshore earthquake has rattled far north Queensland, sending a tremor through Cairns and surrounding areas. Geoscience Australia confirmed a magnitude 4.0 earthquake took place about 30km off Innisfail, south of Cairns, at 4.08pm (AEST) on Tuesday. Residents to the north and south of Cairns reported feeling a tremor, but no damage was reported.

"I was just sitting here and I felt it through the floor and then my computer started to shake," Ms Brown told AAP.
