Kangaroo identifcation

Been puzzling over these rather shaggy-furred macropods for a while, my thoughts swinging between three species, but generally getting a bit confused.

Seen at Jervis Bay in New South Wales.

Shape and furriness of the ears on middle one suggests Eastern Grey?

The other looks to me like Red-necked?

Been a while since I've looked at these things, but I think I would have put them all down as Eastern Grey.

Thanks both. Given how variable the Eastern Greys sometimes seemed, my thinking was towards young Eastern Greys for all three, but shaginess of the first was leaving me uncertain.
