A tiny skink, about 2cm long (without its tail, which it had just dropped). It was very red in colour with a brighter red stripe along its face. It blended beautifully with the leaf litter on the track (see second shot) - I would never have seen it if it wasn't moving.

@dungeonmasterShu - thanks for the suggestion. I looked up Ablepharus and I can see what you mean (they're very similar-looking) but we don't have Ablepharus in Australia.
Not perhaps an "Ablepharus sp."?
Yep, on the track between the swimming hole and the picnic area.
Is that near the swimming hole at the waterfall?
