Meckering Earthquake Preserved Faultine

Location: 12km south of Meckering on the York-Meckering Road.

While only lasting 40 seconds, the Meckering Earthquake had a lifetime impact on this small wheatbelt town. Leaving a scar 32kms long and up to 2m high, the earthquake literally tore open the earth on October 14th, 1968. Today you can still see 1km of the faultline that’s been preserved for viewing.
