Residents from Warragul have been slightly bemused by an earthquake last night - with some confusing the tremor for possums.

The 2.3 magnitude quake struck 17km north of the suburb in Melbourne's east late on Monday night but no significant damage has been reported.

Tweets from Melbourne residents show general confusion and very little concern.
