True_Blue_Aussie saidAustralia is not situated on a Ring of fire, let alone an earthquake zone, so crawl back into the 1980 cupboard that you live in.
I love folks that say stupid things on the internet...
You had better retract that statement twinkle toes because you are very wrong...
Go research that fact yourself!
According to Seismologist Dr Kevin McCue of Central Queensland University in Rockhampton, the Australian continent is hit by a magnitude 6 earthquake every five to six years and currently, one is overdue, " so we're just waiting to see what will happen in Victoria ", and he thinks that it is just luck we haven't had an earthquakes under Melbourne and Sydney.
Some of the fault lines around Melbourne are:
Selwyn's Fault and the parallel Tyabb Fault - Mornington Peninsula.
Beaumaris Monocline transected by the perpendicular Melbourne Warp under the south-eastern suburbs.
Multiple fault lines running from Gippsland to the eastern aspect of Westernport Bay.
Rowsley Fault - north-west of Geelong running northwards to Bacchus Marsh.
Barrabool Fault - running west from Geelong to Colac
Bellarine Peninsula fault, parallel to Selwyn's Fault.
Torquay Fault - running along coastline.
Just to name a few!
As you were saying twinkle toes????
