they arent cunninghams but could be either tree skinks or as said above black rock skinks.
tree skinks will inhabit trees aswell as rock crevices so they are not completely ruled out.
im not sure where wombat park is but mcpheei look similar and also inhabit rocks?

Wombat State Forest is only a hour north west of Melbourne. According to my distribution map in Coggers that would preclude Tree Skinks....but distribution maps are also notorious for being wrong.
ah ok cool. im not sure on the distribution of tree skinks in victoria but if thats the case then i would say they are definitly Egernia saxatilis.

no, it had a different head to the black rock skink. it didnt have a black head. it was greyish with bright white/silver lipps. black rock skinks dont have that!!!
Your arguing with people who would no doubt of been seeing this species
before you were born, they might just know a thing or two that you don't.
If you don't want to take their advice, email the photographs and to the
Victorian Museum, and or seek out a list of species for that national
Seems black rock skinks do have that, being a lighter colouring around
the mouth, click the link.
Black Rock Skink

They are Black Rocks. They are quite common in parts of Wombat.
Black Rocks and Tree Skinks are extremely difficult for most people to distinguish. Most people rely on distribution as they can be quite variable.
