My first thought would be to check out if he is TB or not. Give the Australian Stud Book a call, and they should be able to check if the brand is a TB one. If it is, they will even be able to tell you what his registered name is.
I am inclined to think he is wild bay if he is TB. If he isn't a TB, then I have a few other guesses, but don't want to go out on a limb yet.
For what it's worth, we do have cream dilution in Australian TBs now. It's come from the US, and there are a few studs that stand diluted stallions. However, I don't think it's very common yet, and it's probably not the cause if he is a TB.
Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.
