The Asian house gecko has been in Australia since 1845, but its first Queensland recording was in Brisbane around 1983. The house gecko probably arrived on international cargo and its likely that multiple incursions of house gecko have entered Queensland in this way.
The Asian house gecko has since spread to become one of our most abundant urban reptiles. Asian house geckos are well adapted to tropical and subtropical climates and have a broad diet.
The Asian house gecko is not a declared species under Queensland legislation.
