The Adelaide Hills experienced a minor earthquake late Wednesday evening, causing slight tremors across the metropolitan area but resulting in no significant damage.

The quake, measuring 2.7 on the Richter scale, originated under Mount Barker at a depth of 22 kilometers, occurring at approximately 7:16 PM.

Despite the quake’s relatively low magnitude, over 300 reports were filed by residents within two hours of the event, according to data from the Seismological Association of Australia.

This is not the first seismic activity in the region; the Adelaide Hills have a history of similar events. A more noticeable earthquake of magnitude 3.7 was recorded in March 2022.

Subsequent tremors were felt with two occurrences in April 2023, another in January 2024, and two more in April 2024, indicating a pattern of frequent albeit mild seismic activity in the area.

Local authorities have not reported any injuries or severe property damage following the quake. Residents are reminded to stay informed about earthquake safety and preparedness, despite the minor nature of recent tremors in the Adelaide Hills.
