Queensland rocked by earthquake

Queensland's Sunshine Coast has been rocked by its largest earthquake since 1901, but there are no concerns of a tsunami.

The magnitude 5.3 earthquake was recorded 200km off the coast of southeast Queensland at a depth of 35km in the Coral Sea, the Courier Mail is reporting.

The quake was reportedly felt at Queensland's border with New South Wales, and as far north as Hervey Bay.

A Geoscience Australia spokesman told the Courier Mail there is "zero chance of a tsunami".

Some Bundaberg residents have been evacuated, but there are no reports of damage or injury at this stage.
