Our team - animals and rangers - have missed you. We're so excited that you'll be back soon. We're working flat out to make sure we're ready for you when you get here.
We have made some changes to keep everyone safe. To help us and each other, please...

1: It will be a huge help if you buy your tickets online before you get here to avoid crowding at reception when you arrive.

2: Phone us on (02) 43751100 if you want us to help you with your ticket purchase.

3: Keep MORE THAN 1 emu length apart. We've got 80 acres so there's lots of space for you to spread out.

4: If you have a cold or you're not well, please postpone your visit. We'll change your ticket date to when you are feeling better.

5: We will have roving rangers around the "animal loop" to answer your questions and keep things clean and sanitised.

6: If you're concerned about anything when you are here, please tell us so that we can deal with it.

common eastern froglet

Eastern Froglet ~ Crinia signifera

The Eastern Froglet is a very common frog species of the Sydney region. It is often hard to see because of its small size of only 2.5cm at maturity. Its call is easy to hear and distinguish, with its rapid and constant call of ‘creek creek-creek creek-creeek creek.’

To the untrained eye, this species can be mistaken for many other species due to its variable pattern, colour and texture. Some have a rough dorsal region while others are smooth. The colour varies from a grey to a dark brown with stripes and a white underside with brown mottling.

This species ranges from alpine to coastal habitats and their status is very common in these regions as they are highly adaptable.

Hatching of eggs occurs approx. 7-10 days after they are laid. Metamorphosis occurs throughout the year as breeding also occurs throughout the year. Tadpole life depends on environmental conditions but usually lasts from 6 weeks to 3 months.

To distinguish from the Smooth Toadlet (Uperleia laevigata), look in the groin region. There are no red regions.

The Eastern Froglet lives in the ponds at AWWP. Its call can be heard, especially in the cooler months, when breeding occurs after rain and during the night.
