Getting a bit tired of staring at the same four walls? Yep, us too. It’s been nearly three years since many of us have had to adapt to work from the confines of our homes. But with Australia on the move once again, your remote working set-up is no longer restricted to dining table.
As borders have opened and the states are back into full swing, Australia is getting back to ‘normal’. And as businesses navigate a post-pandemic economy, there’s one thing that seems like it’ll be sticking around for good: remote working.
Remote working gives employees the freedom to work from wherever suits them and puts time back into their day to focus on family, friends or hobbies. In this blog, we’ll be diving into some of the best places in Australia to work remotely.
Fancy sending an email next to a beach? Or completing a project overlooking lush mountains? How about Zoom calls from a sleek, indoor-plant oasis? We’ve got you covered.
Let’s dive into how our remote work gives us the opportunity to discover beautiful locations whilst smashing out the to-do list.
Where to work remotely in Australia: top six spots
If you're thinking about switching up your WFH space, where exactly are the top places to work remotely in Australia? Let’s take a look.
Blue Mountains, NSW
A haven for spectacular scenery and picturesque bushwalks, the Blue Mountains in New South Wales is the perfect place to escape the concrete jungle and clear your mind. Set up a workstation looking out into the dramatic scenery or work from one of the quaint villages dotted throughout the ranges.

Whilst Tassie doesn’t have a lot of co-working spaces set up, it doesn’t mean you can’t base yourself out of the pretty city of Hobart.
With access to breathtaking nature on your days off, you’ll have plenty of fresh air to reset a tired mind and get ready to tackle your work day ahead. And did you know that Hobart has the fastest internet in Australia? You’ll be whizzing through work in no time!

Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane
It’s no surprise that Australia’s three biggest capital cities made it to this list. With modern co-working spaces, cosy cafes (with power outlets and fast wifi), endless amount of things to do and see, these popular cities give remote workers unlimited amounts of creativity.
Let your mind run free and enjoy all that these cities have to offer! Sydney and Melbourne have established some fabulous co-working spaces, filled with indoor plants, state of the art technology and, of course, delicious coffee.
Byron Bay, NSW
Think crystal blue waters, fresh juice smoothies and no shoes. Byron Bay is the chill capital of Australia and the perfect place to slip into a workflow overlooking a beautiful beach.
After increasing in popularity over the past few years, Byron has seen an increase in health-focussed cafes and cosy workspaces for remote workers to connect with like-minded individuals. On your days off, escape to the hinterlands or swim with dolphins, just a couple of the great activities you can do in Byron Bay.

Located on the South Coast of Western Australia, Esperance is the heaven of all heavens if you
love the water. This stunning coastline of Australia is one to be admired, and with more remote working spaces popping up around Western Australia, there’s even more reason to set yourself up for a working day with ocean views.
