    The Meeberrie earthquake was one of the largest to have occurred in Australia. It was felt over a wide area of Western Australia. Damage from the earthquake was small because of the low population in the epicentral region, but the shaking at Meeberrie homestead was very severe. All the walls of the homestead were cracked, several rainwater tanks burst, and widespread cracking of the ground occurred.
