Well, Australia is a bit away from the usual distribution area of Phelsuma day geckos....
Do you have any better pics? Hopefully close-ups.
As far as I know foreign reptiles are off-limits for keepers down under.
If it's actually what it looks like, it either escaped an illegal terrarium or it's a new neozoon... (and they are capable of doing that, not only P.laticauda on Hawaii does prove that)

without a more clear picture and an idea of scale it's pretty impossible to guess.Morelia spilota harrisoni * Morelia spilota mcdowelli * Liasis fuscus * Liasis mackloti * Liasis mackloti savuensis * Liasis olivaceous olivaceous* Anteresia maculosa * Python regius * Gekko gecko * Correlophus ciliatus * Blaesodactylus boivini * Lepidodactylus lugubris

You're absolutely right.
What I thougth to be a green gecko turned out more greyish after zooming to the max.

It's either an Asian house gecko or a delta house gecko, if you look at it's tail and find little spikes running down it, it is an Asian house gecko but if you don't it's a delta house gecko. If it is a delta house gecko you should immediately release it as these are native geckos and are quite rare because of competition with the Asian house gecko. If it is an Asian house gecko you have caught an introduced species that are competing for food with our native geckos (as I mentioned before) so you shouldn't release it, so if it is an Asian house gecko you have just snagged yourself a free pet lizard!
