There's a bird that has taken up residence in one of the wattles at Mt Stromlo 
Observatory, which has a loud clear complex set of calls, which it exchanges 
with another some distance away.  I think it's an Eastern Spinebill (I have 
heard more conventional "peeping" calls as well), but it sits deep in the 
foliage when it calls so I can't see it.  Here's a quick and nasty recording of 
the call.  Can anyone confirm or clarify the ID?
