Co-Working, Hubs & Shared Offices


Co-working spaces and hubs have taken off and have sprung up across Australia.  These spaces cater for a wide range of users from the traditional start-up entrepreneurs and smaller companies to new market entrants, fly-in-fly out professionals to more established entrepreneurs, companies and larger corporates.  Coworking is now an integral part of Australia's startup ecosystem.  A recent report by Startup Muster found that 72% of startups across Australia use coworking.

Co-working spaces have been established in both central business districts (CBD), city fringe, metropolitan and regional areas across Australia with new spaces appearing every month.

Annual memberships range from around $400 per month up to $2,000 per month for unlimited annual access. Cheaper memberships may be available for either longer-term memberships or restricted access/usage.

A number of traditional serviced office providers such as Servcorp now also provide co-working facilities to cater for growing demand.
