It is most assuredly a juvenile Koel.
In Canberra, where it has only been breeding for a short period of time, it seems that Red Wattlebirds are pretty much their host of choice. The yellow belly of the Wattlebird is clearly visible in your photo.
Check out the Birds in Backyards site ( from Aust'n Miuseum, Sydney).
The notes on Breeding match your report.
Three photos on that site - male, female and juvenile.
