Hi Allan,

sounds like a green tree snake (well at 80cm it does). They are a very slender snake, green, olive-green, bluish or brown above with a bright yellow underside. They have a prominent dark eye.

I have seen them around home at Willoughby (Middle Harbour) where they are apparently still quite common. This is only a few km from the centre of Sydney.

regards, Andy

Harrington - We walked through the litoral rain forest towards the beach
and saw lots of birds including female Regent Bowerbird, Figbird,
Lewin's Honeyeater, Golden Whistler and an unidentified pigeon(s) which
clattered through the trees  above our heads. My wife nearly stepped on
a snake(which didn't thrill her). It didn't want to move off the track
so we got excellent views - about 800 cms with a yellow belly. It was
very pretty and looked like some sort of tree snake( any suggetions??).
We saw Southern Emu-Wren in the grass at the edge of the swamp.
