I am late in this dscussion, Nick, and I know you said it was on the lower slopes of Mt Buffalo, and coming from a tall Eucalypt.
My trouble is, your description of the call reminds me entirely and almost exclusively of a Little Grassbird.
Click on the sound file on the right hand column.
Was there a swampy area anywhere, nearby, as the call can carry deceptively. Perhaps the other side of the Gum Tree?
To my ears, the Brush Cuckoo does not fit your description - not even close, as I read your words:

Outside the COG area, but while cycling up Mt Buffalo this morning, on the lower slopes I heard a bird call I couldn't identify, coming from a tall Eucalypt. Three equal notes, the second slightly lower than the first and the third slightly higher than the first, then the same three notes repeated at a slightly higher pitch, then repeated again at a higher pitch again. A pause of five or so seconds, and then the same nine notes repeated. In musical notation, like the attached image. Any suggestions on what the bird was? I didn't see it.
