It lasted about 15 seconds, i don’t know how big it was, but it made the hair on my arms stand up.
Funny though, our dog was barking at nothing about 2 minutes before it happened.

how do you find out how big it was?
I've only lived here for about 3 weeks and i don't know if its common for this area.

But to be safe we took down all the mirrors and pictures off the wall.

From my post above, it looks like it was about 120km away from you guys there in Townsville. Good distance to feel that 5.2, that's for sure.

Glad ya'll are okay.

If you go to my link above, you'll see the USGS info on the quake and can see other info about it and others in the area. So far, it's the only one I've seen there in the past 7 days, though NZ has been getting a good amount, and those aren't too far from ya geologically speaking

Just saw the USGS Earthquake feed list a 5.2 happening in Australia. Not sure if that is near you, but depending on the geology of the area you could have felt the seismic waves from it.

depth = 10km

so many earthquakes at this precise depth must be mathematically impossible??!!

10km = HAARP!!!

It was situated between Ayr and Bowen but a little further inland (West). Hope you guys are all safe up there!

Those coordinates lead me to the very tip of North West Cape, North of Exmouth, Western Australia. Wow, very impressive facility!!

According to Wiki:

"Exmouth is a town on the tip of the North West Cape in Western Australia. The town is located 1,270 kilometres (789 mi) north of the state capital Perth and 3,366 kilometres (2,092 mi) southwest of Darwin.

The town was established in 1964 to support the nearby United States Naval Communication Station Harold E. Holt. Beginning in the late 1970s, the town began hosting U.S. Air Force personnel assigned to Learmonth Solar Observatory, a defence science facility jointly operated with Australia's Ionospheric Prediction Service."

I just did a search for Earth Quakes in Queensland, and found this page interesting.

Earthquake information for Queensland, Australia

Can we expect aftershocks?
And can I put my paintings and mirrors back up ?

Woke me up, as am a shift worker here in Townsville .
Not a pleasant feeling, remember experiencing one here 20 years or so ago .
Jeez as if Queensland hasn't had the raw deal from Mother nature already this year : (
with drought, floods, cyclones, storm surges etc.

No, sorry mate. It's clean over the other side of the country from where I am and I don't know anyone from over that way either.

I edited my earlier post to include some additional info, scroll back up and have a look.

I'm wondering if it could be possible to the ground saturation we've been copping the last few months?
