Frog with brown back, yellow underside and black eyes perched among bark and leaf litter.


Byron Shire is home to 28 species of native frogs including four listed as threatened in NSW.

This means Byron Shire has one of the highest diversity of frogs in any one place in Australia. Unfortunately the Cane Toad, an introduced species which threatens native biodiversity, has also established in the area.

A poster of our Shire's native frogs can be purchased from Council.
