Just sunburn id say. What region are you located in? North East aspect is the full brunt summer sun without the arvo bake but still full on.
They will be fine. I've personally never seen a lilly pilly that was ever drowned. They are nearly bullet proof in my opinion. They survive in just about every climate and thrive once established in all soil types.

Located in Sydney, we've had next to no rain for ages, but I give them a deep water twice a week.
Best to give them a little soil wetter/ seasol to make sure they handle the last of summer. Also another layer of mulch will help. I can't stress that last point enough as it not only protects the roots but does actually encourage more life in the soil.

Bit late now but it needs a bit of regular water to get it tbrough the peak heat. If your plant is stressed like this without evidence of pests or disease seasol or fertilizer will likely kill it further. Without intervention this pily will still be fine until the Autumn cooloff
