Hollow Log Homes

Hollow Log Homes is Australia’s leading designer and manufacturer of quality nesting boxes for wildlife.

A family owned and operated business, Hollow Log Homes was founded by Alan and Stacey Franks in February 1999. Their shared passion for protecting Australian wildlife, coupled with their understanding for the desperate need for artificial nesting hollows was the driving force behind their extensive research into designing, building, and providing some of the most successful nesting boxes for hollow-dependant fauna.

What Our ClientsAre Saying

Noosa & District Landcare

“I have worked with Hollow Log Homes on a number of projects over the last 20 years, ranging from habitat enhancement activities, wildlife rehabilitation support through to wildlife roost disturbance emergencies. Their extensive and up-to-date knowledge of nest box science can be relied upon to ensure the best design and arrangements of nest boxes is achieved.”

Rachel Lyons,

Queensland Glider Network

“The Queensland Glider Network has used Hollow Log Homes nest boxes to improve habitat suitability for a range of glider species in South Eastern Queensland. Their nest boxes are well built from ethically sourced timber, easy to install and, importantly, our glider species love them!”

Matt Cecil,
Projects Manager

Southern Cross University, Lismore, NSW

“I have been using nest boxes manufactured by Hollow Log Homes for almost 20 years so I can attest to their craftsmanship and artisanship. The boxes are so well made they last much longer than you expect any nest box to last. I have conducted multiple research projects and see no reason to source nest boxes anywhere else or to try to make them myself. I can vouch for the extensive field testing that Hollow Log Homes have done, and my field projects have certainly benefited from using such sturdy boxes.”

Ross Goldingay,
Associate Professor

Wildlife Preservation Society of Qld

“Wildlife Preservation Society of Queensland is proud to have worked with Hollow Log Homes to provide habitat for hollow-dependant native fauna for more than 10 years. Build quality, nest box durability, ethically sourced materials and species-specific designs combine to create a range of nest boxes that cannot be bettered.”
