I have Magnolia , roses and even English Oak showing exact same leaf burn the last couple of days . I have no doubt that the higher than mid 40 temps that Sydney got last Friday is the reason ( considering the strong hot wind that was blowing at the time too )
The reason I mentioned the fungus was that some leaves in the photos show as definate spots .

I have read that spots could be caused by water droplets on the leaves at times of extreme UV. They act as a magnifying lens.

Hmmm - perhaps I watered the plants too late in the day on that really hot day...

I've just been in my front garden (a once a year activity) and my camelias, azaleas and magnolia all look like that too. I'm sure it's due to the fact that last Friday was at least 46 in our area and maybe even hotter. It was 57 in my roof space for sure.

I think Seasol is probably the best you can do. Let's just hope we don't get any more days like that.
