The Centralian tree frog (Ranoidea gilleni) is a tree frog from Australia. It lives in the MacDonnell Ranges in the Northern Territory.

This frog lives in rocky places with water holes and bodies of water that sometimes dry up. It hides during the day. Scientists do not know much about the eggs or tadpoles.

Scientists used to think this was the same frog as Litoria caerulea.
