Magnitude 2.1 earthquake rattles town in FNQ Residents in Tully,  

A magnitude 2.1 earthquake has rocked a town in Far North Queensland.

Residents in Tully, 750km north of Brisbane, were left shaken after the quake hit 8.7km away from the town at about 8.02pm on Tuesday.

One local said the sound was 'like a big fire igniting' while others said the impact rattled the dishes on their sink and shook the floor.

In the 2016 census, Tully had a population of 3,290 people.

The town is about a two-hour drive south of Cairns and has a reputation for being one of the wettest places in Australia.

More to come.
