Cairns Regional Council has developed a public awareness campaign aimed at highlighting the dangers of playing in underground stormwater drains.

Four frog characters (Croak Daddy, Calista Frogheart, Taddy the Twirp and Lippy de Slim) feature in various advertising mediums including TV and radio ads and posters. Life-size mascot, Croak Daddy, appears at community events and is available for free school presentations too!
