Nothing showing up on any EQ monitors yet. What kind of building are you in and on what floor? Did you hear any kind of strange noise like someone running across the roof if you are in a one or two story? How long did it last for? Any damage? What are they saying on the local and national news?

Having lived in Taiwan and experienced many EQ's there in the 4-5+ maginitude range, one of the three EQ waves, I forget which one, sounds like someone running on your roof - if you live in a one or two story structure with the right building materials - don't be so defensive.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it very rare to have earthquakes in this region?

No, I dont think one this small would show up on "worldwide" machines under normal circumstances.
Didnt even show up on my seismometer here in Melbourne.

Edit - and as usual after most local earthquakes, the Geoscience Australia website has completely failed to handle the extra traffic, and now wont load. Its slow at the best of times.

Sure it would. Though not significant in terms of damage, and unless it was very shallow, like less than 10km, I'm sure there was no damage - it is geologically significant. If you look at most EQ reporting sites you will see they report most that are 2+ and some report 1+.

I asked a simple question and you inferred something incorrectly from my question - so who is at fault? I suggest that your relationships with other human beings will go more smoothly if you don't infer/assume things and ask polite questions if you need clarification on issues. Example: "Why would you ask if there was a noise like someone running on my roof? Me: "Some earthquake waves can make that noise".
