Edwin, Andrew and others have commented on the spread of cane toads down the east coast.

Whilst in the Kimberleys this year I spoke with the ranger at Keep River National Park [on the Northern Territory side of the WA/NT border]. He said that the rate of cane toad spreading is very dependant on the type of wet season experienced each year. For example last seasons good wet season with more rain in May enabled the cane toads to move a long way west. In fact they are now only 200km east of the WA border. If the next few wet seasons are as wet as the last the cane toads could reach the WA border within one to two years.
