Tornier’s Frog (Litoria tornieri)
We saw only one of these frogs along with dozens of Rocket Frogs and many other frog species. This one’s reddish color made it easy to identify.

I’ve written up an account of this three-week trip to Australia here.

Tornier’s Frog (Litoria tornieri)
This was the second of two frogs I saw hopping in the leaf litter within a couple of feet of each other. They were about the same size and shape and color, and I assumed that they were the same species at the time. But when I studied the photograph later I realized that the first one was Litoria watjulumensis and this one was not. I believe this is a pale individual of L. tornieri, but there are some other similar species in the area and I am not confident.
