An Australian website, theconversation.edu.au , has an article about the recent Victorian earthquake. It discusses how Australia is more prone to earthquakes than many may think, looks at the history of earthquakes in Australia, current research being carried out there, and makes a few comparisons with the Canterbury earthquakes.
The article is here. The web site has a seismology page here and
there is an article that looks at whether there is a connection between mining
and earthquakes (here).
