Dennis Bice, a spokesman for a new report looking into Australian rental and home prices, said Darwin recorded a 0.2 per cent decline in rents for twobedroom apartments. (This) probably reflects the increased supply of apartments coming online in the Top Ends capital, Mr Bice said. But he said the median house price in Darwin rose by 2.4 per cent to $592,000, up by 7.6 per cent for the year. Despite the March quarter showing a slight decrease in the median house price of Australias capital cities, compared to the March quarter of 2012, the weighted average median house price has risen 4.0 per cent in the past 12 months, he said. With the exception of Canberra, there has been median house price growth in all Australian capital cities. He said the weighted average median price for other dwellings for the eight capital cities was $434,601, a 0.9 per cent drop, but compared to the March quarter of 2012 the weighted average median price for other dwellings for the capital cities increased 1.7 per cent. Darwin and Perth recorded the largest increases in median rents for other dwellings, up by 18 per cent and 12.5 per cent, respectively, he said. FrogWatchs Graeme Sawyer will lead the toad-busting mission tonight Predatory toads, hit the road THE TOP Ends most stubborn squatter will be evicted from a Darwin golf course tonight. Busters will be rounding up cane toads at The Gardens Park Golf Links from 7.15pm. Head toadbuster Graeme Sawyer, of FrogWatch, said the goal was to protect reptiles in and around Darwin. Mr Sawyer said that during an audit of reptiles at East Point Reserve, 18 were mircochipped. Another 16 reptiles were microchipped at Casuarina Coastal Reserve. The reptile decline project has been extraordinarily successful and appears to show that toad management makes a real difference in places like Darwin, at least, Mr Sawyer said. A Reptile Muster will be held tomorrow morning for goannas at the Casuarina Coastal Reserve. The muster involves people looking for goannas and pointing them out to a catching team who will weigh and measure the animals before microchipping them. People will also be looking for frill-neck lizards but they are hard to spot during the Dry Season. People should meet at Dripstone Beach car park next to the Surf Lifesaving club at 9.30am. If you want to take on the toads, meet at The Gardens Park Golf Links at 7.15pm.
