    Here's a rough list based on museum records from that region:

    Eastern stone gecko Diplodactylus vittatus
    Northern dtella Gehyra australis
    Dubious dtella Gehyra dubia
    Tree dtella Gehyra variegata
    Asian house gecko Hemidactylus frenatus
    Bynoe's gecko Heteronotia binoei
    Box-patterned gecko Lucasium steindachneri
    Marbled velvet gecko Oedura marmorata
    Zigzag velvet gecko Oedura rhombifer
    Robust velvet gecko Oedura robusta
    Southern spotted velvet gecko Oedura tryoni
    Eastern spiny-tailed gecko Strophurus williamsi

    By 'rough list', I mean 'not exhaustive, and may not actually be found there'.

    For some reason I have no museum records for thick-tailed geckos in Queensland. I'm not sure why that is.

    It's because you've never found one. You employ other people to do it for you.

    Gehyra australis was the term used prior to G. dubia being accepted so that the records of G. australis were correct at the time.

    Cheers,
