Finding a good coworking space is so much more than getting a desk in a room of strangers. It’s about joining a community of like-minded individuals, rubbing shoulders with other freelancers and startups who share your work ethic. That’s why we put together this comprehensive guide to coworking spaces in Australia.

We want to help you find the right coworking space for you, so we’ll focus on the information you really want to know: How much they charge for hot desking vs. permanent rentals, how fast their internet is and what tribe tends to work there.

If you prefer, you can also view all this info in our Google sheet Co-Working Spaces in Australia. If you know of a space that’s missing, reach out to get it added to the list. We update the list of coworking spaces in Australia weekly.
