Not being there, this is a big stab in the dark but the most obvious contender for a high pitch ascending whistle at this time of year is the Golden Whistler. It is different from their strong singing call so not likely to be on the websites etc but a common sound from them is a very simple but strong pleasant sound that certainly fits a high pitch ascending whistle.
-----Original Message-----Thought I'd try the ANBG for a change this afternoon. Mostly the birds were quiet, except for the copious amounts of spinebills and fairy wrens. There was one call I could not identify, a high pitch ascending whistle. There were a few scrub-wrens, spotted pardalotes (heard), crimson rosellas, choughs and a pair of golden whistlers; male and female.
