Since 1992 State Forests of New South Wales have conducted 16 surveys which have included the Green and Golden Bell Frog Litoria aurea as a target species. The majority of these surveys have been concentrated in northeastern New South Wales, an area from which there are few records. Despite the widespread coverage provided by the surveys, this species was not recorded. The indications are that the species is rare in the forest environments which were the main target of the surveys. The survey results also suggest that L. aurea remains rare in other habitats within northern New South Wales. Future surveys for this species need to be directed more towards non-forest areas, particularly on the coast, and there is a requirement for further survey work in southeastern New South Wales.
