Frogs prefer habitat that offer a clean water supply, shelter and food, though specific requirements vary between species. It is often easy to locate frogs by listening for their call.

Reed-fringed ponds and low-lying swampy areas such as Kensington Pond and Ash Paddock, are ideal frog habitats.

The most common of the five frog species recorded in Centennial Parklands is the striped grass frog (Limnodynastes peronii).

Other species recorded in the Parklands are the common eastern froglet (Crinia signifera), dwarf tree frog (Litoria fallax), Peron’s tree frog (Litoria peronii) and the Jervis Bay tree frog (Littoria jervisiensis).
