What do you think?
They are in my Cronulla pond, and the call is very loud at night.
Also I could not see any eggs after this encounter even though I did not really disturb them, maybe they were just practicing.

Hi Steve,

They would be Crinia signifera at Cronulla, C. parinsignifera doesn't come near the coast here. Good to get them breeding there, they aren't too common in backyard ponds. The eggs are usually attached to vegetation underwater.
