A 3.4 magnitude earthquake shook the state from Queenstown to Hobart this morning. The earthquake's approximate location, according to the Government's Geoscience Australia websitewas 20kms north of Wynyard in Bass Strait.
Table Cape Conservation Area is in the Waratah-Wynyard municipality in North West Tasmania not far from the coastal township of Wynyard, Tasmania. Geologically speaking it is a large volcanic plug.
hich runs from Bass Strait up the west coast of the Mornington Peninsula up through the South Eastern Suburbs of Melbourne where it then ends through Mt Dandenong.

Geez what next for Tassie?
I was just down there this holidays, but not in Hobart, or surrounds.
- the last bad fires there were in '67 I think.

It's not all that unusual here.
We do tend to have earthquakes... maybe 1 or 2 a year around this magnitude.
The largest in my memory (I'm 32) was a 4.2, I think it was...
felt like a huge truck driving by the house, but nothing more major than that.
...this is a similar circumstance.
You want to talk about Tasmanian drama, talk about the fires.
They've been horrific. Everybody here knows somebody who has been affected.
Hundreds of homes lost... entire towns razed... it's been truly awful. People here have been amazing though... the generosity of the community has really come to the fore.
