Hi,

The frog in the photo is a Broad-palmed Rocket Frog (Litoria latopalmata) and they are quite common along the east coast particularly in dry forest and cleared areas. The pale wedge in front of each eye helps to distinguish it from the Stony Creek Frog (Litoria wilcoxi) and the Green-thighed Frog (Litoria brevipalmata).

The frog in the photo is primarily a ground dwelling one so it would benefit from low growing plants with mulch or leaf litter to hide in. Logs or large stones in the garden will provide places for the frogs to hide during the day as well.
