There is very little remaining cumberland plain woodland in western sydney, however in remaining areas (eg. around castlereagh nature reserve and scheyville national park) there are lots and lots of frogs.

There still is. There is a dam of some sort that over flowed and went out onto the grasslands next to side of road that formed a puddle. That was where the sound was recorded. Also Plumpton Park and Naragingy Reserve
