Until January 1985 this species was considered to be common across its range, but at this time the first indications of decline were recorded, first at lower altitudes and then throughout the whole range. Tadpoles were known from the southern part of the species range until May 1987, after which it was thought that the species may have gone extinct. However, an individual discovered in 1992 raised hopes for the Eungella day frog. Subsequent monitoring has revealed that populations are recovering in at least part of the species' former range, although drought since 1997 is threatening the species once again.
