A magnitude 6.7 earthquake near Indonesia has shaken people in the Northern Territory, but authorities say there is no tsunami threat to Australia.

Geoscience Australia confirmed tremors from the quake near the Banda Sea off Indonesia were felt in Darwin on Wednesday morning.

The quake occurred around 9am local Indonesian time with an epicentre 180km deep, and there were no immediate reports of damage. Indonesia’s disaster agency said residents in the south-west of the Moluccas island chain also felt the quake.

The epicentre was 630km north-west of Darwin, but Bureau of Meteorology senior forecaster Chris Kent, who is based in the city, said the quake lasted several minutes.
