What is this???

I found this little one on my patio this evening, not sure on what it is.
I live on the bank of the Ross River in Townsville and get quite a lot of frogs but this is the first time i've seen this one.
It's about the size of a 20c coin.

Thats Opisthodon ornatus, used to be Limnodynastes ornatus, commonly known as the Ornate burrowing frog.

Cheers,
