Abstract

The Lithgow earthquake of magnitude ML 4.3, which took place on 13 February 1985, was the largest earthquake to have occurred in the Blue Mountains region of New South Wales since the Kurrajong earthquake of 1919. It caused minor damage in Lithgow and Wallerawang and was felt as far away as Parkes and Dubbo, 200 km from the epicentre. The total damage was estimated at approximately $65 000. Macroseismic and instrumental evidence suggests that, for this earthquake, the attenuation to the northeast in and under the Sydney Basin was much greater than the attenuation to the southwest through the Lachlan Fold Belt.
