When compared to the national average, the breakdown of offices by floor space and number of offices by capacity, Melbourne’s is pretty consistent. However, when compared to Sydney, there are some glaring differences with Melbourne having a higher portion of available square metres and offices devoted to teams under 15 than Sydney. In fact, 87% of Melbourne’s available offices are devoted to spaces for under 15 people compared to Sydney’s 80%.

Finally when it comes to an analysis of prices by coworking operator vs traditional businesses, the spread between the two is far greater for private offices vs a single desk, allowing your team to snag a pretty good deal in a more traditional space if you don’t need all the amenities of a fully serviced office. On the other hand, you’ll save a few dollars using a coworking operator if you’re only after a few desks.
