Southern Brown Treefrog (Litoria ewingii)
The Southern Brown Treefrog is a small frog, about the size of a Spotted Marsh Frog, similar in appearance to the Whistling Treefrog.
It whistling call is somewhat more ‘metallic’ sounding than that of the Whistling Treefrog.
These treefrogs live in Toolern Creek & Little Blind Creek. They can also be heard calling in Lerderderg Gorge & Hopetoun Park. One was also heard calling from a backyard in Bacchus Marsh.
Their loud calls can be heard along Little Blind Creek at night, especially where Centennial Avenue crosses the creek.
