Hi Kerri,
I've added a few full body length photos to the sighting. I printed one and took it back to the reed bed. With the help of a ruler and the many fine calibrating marks on the dried reeds, I was able to find the exact spot and ascertain the lizards length at 80-90 mm which is right for Lampropholis delicata. A trawl through online sites and images has shown me that for a "Little Brown Skink" (Ken Griffiths - Frogs and Reptiles of the Sydney Region) it is various in appearance. Still my photos seem to tick all the boxes in the basic description and with that and size and distribution I think your suggestion is correct.
Cheers.
