These are Damselflies, not Dragonflies, but your mistake is understandable because they are classified in the same insect order, Odonata. When we have more time, we will try to identify the species on the Brisbane Insect website. They are in fact mating and in the act of depositing eggs.
Thank you for the response, I’ll have to tell me parents what is living in their dam. They’ve let it go seminative so there are at least 5 types of frogs and so many more insects. I recently just bought the book advertised on the website and am starting to read it. It’s all very fascinating!
