Male Australian red-eyed tree frogs range from 5.4 to 6.2 cm, snout to vent length, while females are larger at 5.8 to 6.8 cm, snout to vent length. They have a smooth brilliant green dorsum and a lemon yellow granular ventral surface. There is little green coloring on the limbs, except for the upper forearms and the tibia; the rest of the limb is yellow. The thighs are deep purple, and Litoria chloris' irises are bright red-orange with a horizontal pupil. This tree frog has a typical Hylidae build with long, slender limbs and webbed hands and feet with large toe discs. A distinct tympanum is noticable (Hicks 1999).
