Frogs in the Bega Valley

Our region is home to more than 20 species of frogs.
Some species are commonly seen, others are rare, and some are critically endangered. 

A recent event in Merimbula showcased some the wonder and weirdness of Australia's frogs. Harrison Warne and Jack Breedon presented their 30 minute Life in the Wet: A frogumentary film to an appreciative audience at the Merimbula Wharf Aquarium & Restaurant.

Harrison has been a long-term contributor to the Atlas of Life, and it is a privilege to be part of his continuing journey into wildlife photography and documentary making.

To learn more about their film-making in Queensland's Wet Tropics, or to chat with Harrison and Jack, visit their Facebook page


Ecologist Steve Sass shared his knowledge of frog biology and frog distribution in the Bega Valley. He has kindly made his 2011 report Situational Analysis: Frogs in the Bega Valley available here:

So get involved and help us build the picture of frog diversity and distribution in the region - add your sightings to NatureMapr and learn to identify and track the frogs you are hearing with the Australian Museum Frog ID audio files.
