VIDEO: Tour Melbourne's Best Coworking Spaces From Your Desk
Don’t have time to visit all the coworking centres on your list? No worries – tour them all from your desk with our fly-through videos of the best shared office spaces in Melbourne.
Here at Office Hub, we always recommend going for a physical tour of your future workspace before committing to anything. Visiting the space is the best way to get a feel for the ambience, community and services on offer. Nevertheless, we all know how it feels to be time poor, and getting out to visit office spaces can be pushed to the back burner if you’re super busy.
But don’t despair – now you can hop on a virtual tour of some of the best and biggest spaces in Melbourne from the comfort of your own desk. Or, if you still plan to tour and just want to narrow down your search beforehand, our video tours can help you do just that.
Come along with us as Grant, Office Hub CEO, tours some of the leading coworking and serviced office centres in Melbourne.
With a community of like minded professionals and an exclusive business address, @WORKSPACES features contemporary light-filled workspaces suitable for everyone from freelancers to corporations. Think executive boardrooms with top-notch tech and elegant office suites, while the color-pop kitchen provides a place for you to sit down, break out and make connections. To give clients a competitive edge, @WORKSPACES’ business centres are designed to give members options in how and when they work, while delivering five star levels of service to bolster business processes.
“This workspace is located in the sought-after ‘Paris End’ of town,” says Grant. “This is where most businesses want to be – as the historically affluent part of the city, you’ll find major corporate companies, boutique brands and luxury restaurants at this end of Collins Street.”
Workspace365 offers four professional coworking hubs in the commercial centre of Melbourne, and this office space in the uniquely developed 555 Bourke Street is a particular highlight of their Australia-wide workspaces.
This coworking hub features a classy fit out, meeting rooms to suit all needs, soundproof phone booths for private calls and amazing corner office suites for those who want the best spot in the house. Get ready to be impressed by the professional and welcoming reception, as well as a mezzanine level that opens up the space and puts the breakout lunch room at the heart of all casual collaboration.
“Our space is built around the kitchen,” says Michael Benson, CEO of Workspace365. “As you can see, it’s a great space to work and for people to connect – it’s the focal point for all our offices.”
As the largest network of office, coworking and meeting space in the world, it comes as no surprise that Regus has a whopping 27 serviced offices in Melbourne. Spread between the central business district and the suburbs, Regus centres are known for their professional vibe and affordable packages tailored to match certain business needs.
The centre at 555 Lonsdale Street is no exception, with its immaculate office suites, think-pods and light-filled breakout areas. This particular serviced office from Regus makes our list for its expansive event space, a classy option for anything from a product launch to an industry conference or client party.
“This centre from Regus has a massive event space that can be configured any way you want,” says Grant. “Boardroom, classroom, theatre style – a fantastic option that many businesses would find useful.”

Carefully curated with collaboration in mind, it features colourful and engaging breakout areas, inspiring meeting rooms for hire, coworking desks and private offices, with options to scale as you grow. Just outside the door, there’s a lively music scene, eclectic pub scene and a wide array of fabulous eateries. If you’re steering clear of the city centre, this Richmond coworking space is equally professional and impressive as centres in the city.
“There are booths where people can break out from their desk, and you’ve got other breakout meeting-area here that are just super engaging,” says Grant in the video tour.
Christie Spaces is an Aussie-owned coworking company with six centres around the country. Recently rebranded with a new collaborative focus, Christie Spaces aims to support local and international businesses through its role as a dynamic leader in the coworking community.
This Christie centre on Collins Street boasts sophisticated style and a wide variety of private office suite, meeting rooms, and casual space for downtime and meetings. Sat on the prominent corner of William and Collins Street, it also offers one of the best locations in town for both business and pleasure.
“You get all this space here, which is really beautiful,” says Grant. “Everyone’s got breakout areas and booths nearby, and on each floor you’ve got another breakout area where you can sit and have more of a group session in an open space.”
