Extra earthquake monitoring equipment is being sent to north Queensland, with experts predicting more events after last week's 5.8 earthquake.

Last Thursday's quake, off the coast of Bowen, was the second strongest ever recorded off Australia's east coast, and experts say more are likely to follow.

Geosciences Australia says the extra monitoring gear will help them better locate future events, and understand the forces at play.
