Field Notes: The Great Barred Frog reaches a size of 8 centimeters, and has large, powerful legs. The Great Barred Frog is a ground-dwelling frog, which inhabits rainforests, Antarctic beech forests or wet sclerophyll forests. This frog breeds in both streams and ponds and calls from the surrounding land. All the other frogs of the genus Mixophyes breed only in streams. The mating call is a very loud "wark-wark-wark" which is occasionally followed by a softer "bwak-bwak". (Wikipedia)

Here is a (not very good) pic of what I believe are their tadpoles in the Bunya mts.
They are much bigger than cane toadpoles and were in a stream at the base of a waterfall.
