The mountain stream tree frog, northern tops frog, leaf green river tree frog or Barrington tops frog (Ranoidea barringtonensis) is a tree frog from Australia. It lives in New South Wales.

This frog is 3.7 cm in length. It is green with dark spots and a dark stripe behind the eye. It has a white belly.

Scientists disagree about whether to call this frog barringtonenesis or pearsoniana. Some say this frog and Pearson's green tree frog are two different species and some do not.
