about  Reedy Creek Reserve  

When Reedy Creek Reserve received 300mm of rain in March this year it was the trigger for the local frog population to swing into song.

Listen closely and you’ll hear a minimum of 3 frog species calling. See how you go identifying the frogs call in this video recording before QLD ecologist Murray Haseler sets the record straight.

The headwaters of Reedy Creek is dominated by a canopy of paperbark (Melaleuca quinquenervia), cabbage palm (Livistona Australia) and a native climbing maidenhair fern (Lygodium microphyllum).

You can now easily access this area via the Paperbark Forest Walk.
