That's a great sighting, Calyptorhyncus.  I expect quite a few birders will head out there hoping to spot it!  And yes, interesting that it wasn't a dark morph. I believe it is mostly dark morph that turn up in the ACT - though please correct me on that if I have it wrong

There was one at the Naas Road/Apollo Road Paddock this morning around 10.30am this morning.

Interestingly it wasn't dark-morph; it was in the trees along the ridge, being subtly smaller than a BFCS with a different face pattern.

No Brown Treecreepers that I saw or heard, quite quiet there with the only other interesting birds  being Diamond Firetails.
