Could it have been Broome, Bruce?  We have many artificial platforms
constructed here in town as an alternative to them nesting on
telephone and power line poles.  The artificial platforms are provided
mostly by Western Power as an alternative (and a good one!) to trying
to stop the birds breeding altogether.  There are several nests that
have just produced young this year, and the babies have mostly
finished fledging.

Broome, WA
