Hi all, does anybody know what this siren is? Looks like a model 5/7 but with long legs?

most likely just a 5/7 with a custom shroud that makes it seem taller

Have we considered this is not an American siren. It is in Australia.

After poking around for a bit, this does not appear to be an official Federal Signal/Fedelcode product. After looking at the street view for a while, the quality of this siren seems relatively poor. Also, this siren is not quite the right size to be any Model X siren, so I guess this is a homemade siren.

Since this is in Australia, I'd throw a guess that it's 1 Grifco with a custom Model 5/7-looking housing.

I'm thinking it might be a Grifco.

I wouldn't just slap "grifco" on there. It appears to have a chopper around the same size as a Model 7 and it also appears to have a support bar coming from the stator assembly going up into the shroud. It might be a Model 7 with a custom shroud. (Don't say that it's unreasonable for a siren to get shipped all the way there. I've seen several examples of sirens from Australia in America and vice versa.)

Where have you seen an Australian siren in America?

I've seen a couple model 7s, a presumed cyclone, and new Whelens (Vortexes I believe) are being installed every year.
And hey, the 888 was based off of the Model 2, so that technically counts as an American siren. And there's like 500 of those.

But you said you've seen Australian sirens in America.
