Wikipedia Abstract

The southern brown tree frog, brown tree frog, whistling tree frog, or Ewing's tree frog (Litoria ewingii) is a species of tree frog native to Australia: most of southern Victoria, eastern South Australia, southern New South Wales from about Ulladulla — although this species is reported to occur further north — and throughout Tasmania including the Bass Strait Islands, in which state it is the most frequently encountered frog. It has been introduced to New Zealand, where it can be locally abundant.
