Coworking spaces are becoming increasingly popular across Australia, and are being considered the future of work for many reasons, including the sense of community, convenience and flexible work options offered. 

Whilst Sydney and Melbourne are currently dominating Australia’s coworking scene, we have seen a consistent rise in coworking spaces in Perth, Brisbane and Adelaide.

The number of startups and freelancers has also boomed over the last few years. In 2023, we saw a 7% increase in the number of businesses operating in Australia compared to the previous year, and this figure is expected to grow in 2024.

Entrepreneurs all over Australia are growing their businesses at a rapid rate thanks to the networking opportunities and collaboration opportunities that coworking spaces offer, as these buzzing environments are proven to spark creativity and increase productivity.

Coworking is a great solution for entrepreneurs seeking a professional and easily accessible location to get their business off the ground, where having somewhere to base themselves can give entrepreneurs a greater sense of credibility in contrast to working from home.

For startups and small businesses, traditional private office spaces can be expensive and isolating. Renting a space within a coworking environment allows founders to focus on their work, whilst engaging with the community and growing their network in an affordable way.

These factors have all contributed to the surge in coworking in recent years, and there are no signs of the trend slowing down. By 2030, it is predicted that at least 12% of commercial retail space will be occupied by flexible workspaces.
