A Wren but which one?

Taken 05-Sep-2015 in SE Qld.

 Has a splash of orange on the rump andon the shoulder. Tail is straight up when perched but quite long and has a black feather at the front of the brown ones. Face markings suggests an immature bird?

I would say Red Backed Fairy Wren, not sure if it's immature.

Thanks for the ID. I should have worked that one out myself.
