We live in Mossman, Wet Tropics, Nth Qld.

This frog hopped into our bedroom, second storey of house.
We live about 20 m from beach and just have houses on other three sides.

Showed frog to school children then released it into local rainforest.

hmm, scanning through the QLD frogs on Frogs of Australia, this one is similar barring the cream line running down the back of yours... great pic btw.

i was particularly noting the black line that ran from snout through the eye to the belly. however, i'm probably wrong :) there's bazzilions more frogs in queensland!

Thanks for comments folks.
That rounded snout and the distinct cream line don't check out so I wonder if there are other possibilities.
Dave, whom we emailed initialled, posited it would be Mixophyes.
