The best digital nomad coworking spaces in New Zealand (Māori: Aotearoa) offer flexible, casual working options – like hot desks – for working travellers, digital nomads and entrepreneurs. Whether you pay by the hour (and just check your emails and make that Zoom call) or a half-day or day rate for a busier schedule, here are all the options for you while you nomad your way around New Zealand.

What Is A Coworking Space?

A coworking space is a shared ‘office’ where you can work on a temporary (or long-term) basis, with various services such as internet, kitchen facilities and meeting rooms. You can also network with others, collaborate on projects and maybe even meet your future business partner.

Why Use A New Zealand Coworking Space?

As a digital nomad currently house-sitting in New Zealand, I run my business from the houses I look after. Yet, working alone can be lonely at times and online networking just isn’t the same as meeting with like-minded folks over a coffee at a stylish coworking space.

You might feel extra motivation by being surrounded by others with a similar attitude, greater discipline of set working hours, and a professional background in which to conduct business. There are even dog-friendly co-working spaces so that dog lovers can add pats and belly rubs to their morning caffeine routine.

Why Digital Nomad Coworking Spaces?

Many coworking spaces are designed for long-term tenants looking for permanent desks and work stability. By contrast, digital nomads are generally seeking flexibility, with hot desks and casual passes being better suited. This post will cover the best digital nomad-friendly co-working spaces around New Zealand (Māori: Aotearoa).

Note: Prices may or may not include 10% Goods and Services Tax (GST) and prices are for hot desks (unless specified). Please confirm rates and hours with the coworking space before booking.
