you have buffalo which doesn't grow from seed, you will need to buy turf & cut it into your lawn - l'd be inclined to kill it off and start again....its not a large area

I have no idea of the site geology or your region and as usual I may not be right!

 

from the images it looks like high Fe soil content and the grass that has managed to escape is happy looking for somewhere else to live

start here (nothing to do with lawn and they are trying to sell fertiliser)

read the parts labeled Water logging and Toxicity Symptoms and then research from there.

 

EDIT: went of topic there, I agree it is buffalo and agree with CGAHS

I remember what I'd forgotten but can't remember why I needed to

Before you replace it, you need to know why it died like that.

 

Looks like some chemical was put on it or it was sprayed with round up perhaps?

 

If not like Grae said, it's not happy there and any replacement may go the same way unless you know why it's in that condition.

Either start again as said above or take the long runners off the footpath and plant in the patchy areas and mow at about 40mm, water and fertilize and patience watching it recover.

Other than the dead spots, the buffalo looks in good nick. You may have slugs eating the root system which causes dry spots. Not matter what approach you go with, you'll need to make sure there's no slugs eating the root system.
