I was listening to the ABC radio news this afternoon and they mentioned the prediction of Cane Toads spreading to Darwin and the Kimberley region in WA within the next 20 years (however, I think unfortunately it may be much earlier than that) and even further south around the Australian coast if nothing can or is done about them. As I am aware they are spreading NW (after encountering a few recently in Kakadu NP), but I am wandering how far south along the east coast they progressing?  I know a few odd ones have turned up in Sydney but these may have been brought by trucks from northern NSW/QLD.
