    Eastern Stone Diplodactylus vitattus
    Unfortunatly the only one we found and without a tail.

    Bynoes Heteronotia binoei
    The most common gecko that we encountered and the colours/patterning varied from one area to the next.

    I can't identify this gecko, so if somebody could that would be great.

    Variegated Dtella Gehyra variegata

    Granite Belt Leaf-tail Saltuarius wyberba
    We managed to find four of these amazing geckos in the first 15 minutes of looking - which is four more than we expected to find.

    Original tail.

    Regenerated tail.
