Author's notes

I reckon that it looks very much like a Nobbi Dragon.

According to my reptile book nobbi is inland and Jacky (murictus) is coastal, main difference is scale size and inside of mouth colour.

Very difficult to differentiate from image but seems to be more like the Jacky Dragon
this link might help - http://reptilesofaustralia.com/lizards/agamids/cnobbi.htm#.XHtVibhxVPY

I have added another dorsal view photo that might help and also, it was very close to sighting 4201184 (within 50 m).

I'm confident that this is a Jacky Dragon due to the strongly heterogeneous dorsal body scalation, whereas the Nobbi has fairly homogeneous dorsal scales.
Also the natural range of the Nobbi doesn't include the South Coast of NSW.

The Jacky is also called the Tree Dragon, but this has great patterning.
