Byron Bay coworking spaces balance vibe, surf and hustle in a way few locations in Australia do and it is a perennially popular destination. We will compare the 10 or so local spaces; including costs, hours and services. Then, we’ll look at some spaces in the surrounding area, such as Mullumbimby and Brunswick Heads, for those who want to explore the region. Work by the beach or riverside? What is the perfect space for you?

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 unlimited high-speed 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 Byron Bay Coworking Space?

As a digital nomad currently house-sitting in Australia, 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 by the beach at a cool 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 dog lovers can add pats and belly rubs to their morning caffeine routine.

For digital nomads and casual users, a hot desk (HD) gives you access to a desk and chair in a shared space – usually in an open-plan office – for a half-day, day, week, or month at a time. You use whatever space is available and, generally, take your items home with you at the end of the day. You may need to book ahead or simply drop in when needed.

A dedicated desk (DD) is usually offered weekly, monthly (or longer). Your membership reserves the same desk for you in the shared space for as long as you pay for it, sometimes with a lockable desk or locker for your gear.

A private office (PR) is the most expensive option, but the best for privacy and regular meetings. If you manage a small team, there are often negotiable rates for multiple staff members.

Questions To Ask Before Selecting A Byron Bay Coworking Space

Some good questions to ask your coworking space before signing up for a membership:

  • Do you offer a free/discount trial?
  • What do your memberships include? Are there any additional costs?
  • What type of industries do your coworkers work in?
  • Do you run any networking or social events?

Now you know what to look for in a coworking space and the prices/services each one provides… you can get coworkin’. A great coworking space has the right balance of sociability and quiet; the right amount of work and play. Plus, more practical things like good opening hours, parking, affordability and fun perks.

There is a Byron Bay coworking space for every budget and business. Which one will you choose?
