Sounds like you have a few Limnodynastes peronii with a single Lim. tasmaniensis thrown in.

Thanks for that Evan.

There were two different calls the louder one and another one in the background. The background call made a "Ponk" sound.

Ah, yeah sorry. The single 'tock' is the peronii, the rapid, repeated tock is the tasmaniensis.
