Mystery swamp call (Altona, Vic)

Just wondering if anyone here has heard this call before:
It's the "mir" call you can hear every few seconds. I suspect it's a Spotless Crake, and found one other similar recording on Xeno-canto labelled as such, but this call isn't described in the field guides, and isn't in any apps or the BOCA recordings.
I've heard it before, perhaps 5 times over the last 10 years in various swamps. I'd like to know if others have heard it, and if anyone knows for sure if it's a Spotless Crake.
