It looks most like a finch nest to me but could be fairy-wren or thornbill. I have only found one white-browed scrubwren nest (in the pampas grass beside my lounge room window). It was VERY well hidden and impossible to tell where the nest started and the pampas grass stopped. Beruldsen's book says of the white-browed scrubwren "places on or near the ground in dense low vegetation. They are exceedingly well concealed and difficult to find." That doesn't match your photo.
