Sedgefrogs of Cullendore NSW

A few of the frogs seen at Cullendore High Country during our stay this September.  It was extremely dry and these photos were all taken near the campsite, well away from the main water source. Eastern Sedgefrogs are a delight and we love seeing the variation of their colours.

It was also refreshing not to see any cane toads!

Frog List from our camp site:
  1. Common Eastern Froglet Crinia signifera 
  2. Stony Creek Frog (aka Lesueur's Frog) Litoria lesueuri 
  3. Broad-palmed Rocket Frog Litoria latopalmata
  4. Eastern Sedgefrog (aka Eastern Dwarf Tree Frog) Litoria fallax
  5. Striped Marshfrog (aka Brown-striped Frog) Limnodynastes peroni
  6. Emerald-Spotted Treefrog (aka Peron's Tree Frog) Litoria peronii
  7. Bleating Treefrog Litoria dentana

There would have been  many other frogs at "the Overflow" dam, however we didn't venture down there at night to have a look and didn't pack the long gum-boots to access that area to look for frogs. We look forward to returning to this area rich in biodiversity after there has been a large amount of rain.
