All good suggestions. For myself, I think it would be best if Vivienne did not attribute a definite ID to this bird.

I wrote to Vivienne too. I suggested Brown Thornbill or Scrubwren and pointed out that Rock Warbler only occurs in the Sydney Basin.

An Origma (Rock Warbler) is Robin sized, not Wren sized. I'd think something more like a Scrubwren or Grasswren?
