Hi Peter
I would suggest that "unusual" calls at this time of year, where you were, might be Yellow-tufted Honeyeaters. I have seen them around timbered foothills at Michelago at this time of year.
Birds in Backyards site (Australian Museum) site describes calls as:
Has a varied single-note contact or alarm call: tsup, shup, jik, chow or scow. Also has various soft notes used as social calls, and a soft 'weet-weet-weet' territorial call.
I emphasise the "various soft notes".
You may listen to some of these calls on the mp3 file attached to this page:
Hope that helps.
