I think this is a female Superb Fairywren. I haven't managed to see the male to confirm, but she looks noticeably different to the female Variegated Fairywren that I saw not far away, and similar to female Superb Fairywrens I have seen elsewhere [see other observations]. This article is very helpful in identifying female fairywrens.
