I'd say it could be Litoria adelaidensis, but really it could be anything. :?

The eyes look like moorei, but the colours are a little odd for them, also that line running from the eyes is more obvious in adelaidensis. But its one of the 2.

Since my Brad M account hasn't been fixed yet I'll just use this one.

I think it is L. adelaidensis.

I agree. Litoria adelaidensis has the two part eye, where the top is copper and the bottom is dark. Litoria moorei just has an orange eye all over. He has a scar on his nose, which I think is the confusing bit.
