Also what is the quietest bird inAustralia(to normal hearing)?

I take it that you mean, which bird is the hardest to hear when it is calling at it's loudest? [Any bird can be quiet if it isn't calling or is just burbling to itself]

If that is the case, one candidate would probably be the spotted quail thrush, which has a high-pitched call that some people can't hear.
