Queenstown was jolted by a Fiordland-based earthquake this afternoon.
GeoNet's website said the 4.6 magnitude shake at 1.50pm was centred about 35km north-west of Te Anau, about 98 kilometres deep.
Fraser Carson said on social media he felt a "little tremble" at Queenstown's Pinewood Lodge.
"I thought I was losing my mind."
