I was at Justice Robert Hope Park this morning and i spotted a RL fly into a hollow. When i got closer i could hear a chipping call coming from the hollow. After a while 2 birds emerged then flew to a nearby tree so i quickly moved away from the hollow and 1 bird flew straight back into the hollow and the other bird flew away. 

I stayed about another 10-15 minutes and the bird stayed in the hollow the whole time.

The photo attached shows the bird on the right with tatty chest feathers, i assume this is from nesting?
