I should have asked what size as well. But my calculated guess at this stage is Litoria tyleri, Tyler's Tree Frog or sometimes Southern Laughing Tree Frog. Anyway, I think it definitely must be a Litoria and I can't find a better match than that species.

The frog you have shown also looks a bit like a Litoria Perons tree frog when it's cold if it has cross shaped pupils & especially if it has even just a small amount of yellow/gold in groin from what I've researched which is in the Litoria family group. Am just about to upload some photo's of my Persons tree frog visitors so compare them.

I think this frog could be a female Bleating Tree Frog (Litoria dentata).
