    Went for a month long trip to the East Gippsland area of Victoria as i do over summer every year, and also ventured a little into south coast Nsw. Found many interesting reptiles as usual and also some stunning frog species. Enjoy :D

    Very very nice pictures, you've done very well. If you ever come herping around Newcastle, let me know, you're getting very good at photography and I predict you'll only get much better.

    Great photos Matt. I'm from East Gippsland so see a few of these critters. I get up to Merimbula occasionally so will have to have a look around Pambula for some diamonds. Any suggestions for sites?
