Worms Downunder’s ‘Worm Habitats’ are top-quality, Australian-made worm farms which can assist in processing organic waste into nutrient rich worm castings. Design and manufactured on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, there are a range of sizes and colours available to process waste from households, cafes, businesses and more. The systems are easy to use, effective, robust, pest and rodent resistant and odourless when used correctly. Worms Downunder has a wealth of information to help you on your journey in sustainably managing your household, business, garden and even your pet waste!
The Habitats all work on a ‘never-fill’ principle with liquid collection bases and casting collection hatches common features. They are all strong, safe, sturdy and easy to use. The depth allows a good thermal mass, giving the worms ability to find cool spots in harsh summers, and warm spots when cool. We have had great success with our systems Australia-wide.

The Worm Habitats come in a range of colours. Green is standard to all sizes, but the 140lt, 240ltr and our large Worm Habitat Grande and Double Grande have a variety of other colours available (see pages for details).

Worm Habitat Design and Development
The development of the Worm Habitat range resulted from a lack systems which could process a household’s waste effectively and efficiently. The uniqueness of the Habitats has led to the design registration and patenting of the key features.
Our Worm Habitats (140 and 240ltrs) are designed for families, offices and schools, for example, and can process in excess of 20kgs per week or 1 ton per year! These are low cost efficient systems allowing on-site processing of smaller waste streams. The Worm Habitat Grande is designed for larger waste streams such as created by horses, at resorts, markets, shopping centres etc. The system is modular and can be daisy chained for efficient watering and liquid collection. Each module can process from 50 to 100kgs per week as well as create 100litres of quality worm juice per week.
