Kroombit Treefrog

Kroombit Treefrog

Endangered under Queensland’s Nature Conservation Act 1992 and nominated as Critically Endangered under Australia’s Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999

First described formally in 2013, the tiny Kroombit Treefrog is only known to live in Kroombit Tops National Park south-west of Gladstone.

Hard to find and with little documented about them, surveys since the mid-1990s have only confirmed the species in the headwaters of five streams found on the eastern side of the Kroombit Tops plateau. Find out more about where they live and why they’re special here.
