    i go herpingthere ,oh and i go with kelly too but i dont live there.
    there is an abundance of species,probably the richest diversity in sydney.
    me,Kelly another guy we know whose a local went herping a little while back on a trail where all of sydneys 4 gecko species turn up,i saw 3 that afternoon and night.
    also see vulnerable listed species like red crowned toadlet and giant burrowing frog.
    Almost all of the different sydney snake species are there, i also get alot of callouts there and everytime has been a different snake species

    I go herping up in Yengo NP creek sometimes, not that far away. Definitely a good place for herping on those dry sandy gullys and ridges.

    You say 4 gecko species I count 5? O.lesueuri, O.robusta, P.platturus, N.milli, D.vittatus.
    I have seen all in the one weekend up there.

    See many H.bungaroides? I have never seen one of those in the wild although a person I know got one right where I ussually camp up there.

    O.robusta ? that would be out of sydney in yengo,though only 4 species actually in sydney basin or its surrounds according to sydney guide but i am definantly no gecko man lol.
    Broadheads can be found if you look in right place at right time but it is usually in remote locations.
    where do you usually camp? sounds like nice place

    Depends what you actually call Sydney and its surrounds and O.robusta is definitely in the Sydney sandstone basin so to me, in the Sydney area.

    Just camp in one of the many campsites at Yengo. Not gonna go giving away gps coordinates ya know :p, reptiles will start dissapearing and I'll lose my best spots.

    Herping

    I'm up near Gossie, herping is slim pickings now things are cooler and getting colder, you can find some herps under rubbish or on the rare occasion now when the sun is shinning enough that you feel it actually warms you when you stand in it. You have half a chance of seeing a snake basking if you cover enough track c: Will feel like forever until things are on the move again! :C

    It's a big city, on the eastern edge of this landmass.... hehe. I have seen RBB in the parks around Blacktown, but nothing else.

    I'll have to get out more :)
