Hi,

Your frog is a Peron's Tree Frog (Litoria peroni). A nice frog to have around the home! I think it would be sheltering in the letterbox because it's dark and maybe a bit cool. It would snack on any bugs that wander in but at night it would go abroad and search for food nearby before returning.

May be I should have left it in the letterbox but I took it out as I thought it may not know how to get out.
