Hi Liz, According to our reptiles book they are all Gippsland water dragons down here, not easterns. Just reviewed all our photos of them, and the patterns are incredibly variable, so yes, I'd say both your photos are of the same species. Fortunately we also have a photo taken in Brisbane of the eastern w.d. and it has a big black streak running from below the eye back to the nape, which is pretty distinctive.
