Back in September (2011) I spent 2 weeks in south-central Queensland, near the town of Roma, volunteering on a dingo survey. The area lies within the Brigalow Belt bioregion, which can be extremely productive (as you can see here); however, during our time there it was quite cold, frequently approaching and even dropping below freezing. Despite being from temperate North America, I’m not a fan of the cold, having spent the past 3.5 years in the tropics. Nevertheless, we turned up several herps, including 6 new reptiles and 1 new frog for me.
The area we were in consisted primarily of cleared pasture land with remnant patches of brigalow and cypress woodland on sandy soils. There were also a few sandstone mesas dotted around the place, the sides of which look like this.
