Our aims are to encourage and foster an interest in frogs, to provide expert assistance and education for newcomers and undertake a continuous survey of the local native species to determine their relative abundance and distribution. The Brisbane Frog Society was formed at a meeting held at the Downfall Creek Bushland Centre in September of 1990. It was incorporated to become the Brisbane Frog Society Inc. in December of 1992. Widespread interest in frogs lead to growth of the society into areas outside the Brisbane metropolitan area, consequently the society was renamed the Queensland Frog Society Inc. in August 1998. to reflect the expansion of the society. The patron of the Queensland Frog Society is Dr. Glen Ingram.
