Sydney leads the way in available flexible office space for rent, with 37,095 sqm. Though some of this new capacity has come from new office openings, the pandemic has also added to the market’s supply.

The Sydney CBD, as the primary business center for many Australian head offices, has some of the highest rents before discounts. The median price per person is higher in larger offices because these larger spaces are often fully enclosed, on a dedicated floor, and include their own amenities and meeting rooms.

If you don’t have the budget for the Sydney CBD, there are plenty of other flexible spaces outside the CBD or on the city outskirts where you can quickly set up shop, such as North Sydney, St Leonards, or North Strathfield, that offer great value.

For smaller businesses that require closer proximity to the downtown core, Pyrmont, Chippendale, Paddington, and Bondi Junction all offer flexible office space at a lower cost.

From the Northern Beaches to Sydney’s Inner and Outer West, and from South Sydney to the Eastern Suburbs, Sydney has office space for rent in over 70 bustling suburbs starting at $200 per person per month.

Most flexible office prices are calculated on a per workstation (or per person) per month basis in the flexible office market. Some flexible agreements can be negotiated on a per square foot, per month basis.
