The cave-dwelling frog or cave frog (Litoria cavernicola) is a frog from northwestern Australia.

The cave-dwelling frog lives in caves and between large rocks in sandstone canyons in the Kimberly region. It is green to reddish-brown in color.

The frogs lay their eggs in shallow pools of water, but scientists do not know what the tadpoles are like.
