Coliving in Australia

The gorgeous Australia is the sixth largest country in the world. It’s land mass is mostly rural, with farmland that stretches for days and residents who live mostly by the coast. Having just 2.66 persons per metre, it is sparsely populated - there are more sheep than people in the country! Despite this, its cities are some of the most vibrant and interesting places to live, and pull digital nomads in with a high quality of life.
With rich pre-colonial history, as well as the European influence from the 1600s, there is so much to learn in this country, which is why thousands of young people travel Australia on a working holiday visa. As such, co-living spaces are gaining popularity here, and you will find many people working remotely together in these communities.
Australia is a progressive country, the second in the world to give women the vote, and has a fusion of different cultures, being so close to New Zealand and China. Communal living means mingling with the friendly and welcoming Australians, who welcome tourists and immigrants alike. Aussies are commonly known for their laid back attitude and sense of humour, so getting on with the locals is a breeze.
There are so many places to explore. If it’s the outback you like, you will find stunning wildlife and fauna, including, of course, the odd kangaroo. The climate can often be tropical, but with such a large land mass to cover, it can be incredibly hot, or could catch a cool Arctic wind.

If you are in the country, you can’t miss watching a game of cricket - in fact in an aread like Melbourne, sports are an important part of city life! With famous skyline sights like the Sydney Opera House on offer all over, there are plenty of cosmopolitan activities to entertain you in areas that are diving into the coliving movement.

Finding affordable communal living in Australia

Finding affordable housing in Australia can be tough, especially in cities with high rent prices. One solution that many people turn to is communal living with shared spaces and roommates. This can be a cost-effective way to have a private room while still being able to afford rent in a desirable location. There are a few different options for finding a shared living arrangement in Australia. One option is to look for a private room for rent in a coliving home. This can be a good option for people who want some privacy, but still want to be part of a community. Another option is to look for a shared room, where you'll be sharing a bedroom with one or more roommates. This can be more affordable, as you'll only be responsible for paying for your own bed. The downside is that you'll have less privacy, as you'll be sharing a bedroom with others. You can find both accommodation options on Coliving.com. We can help you find a compatible roommate based on your preferences and lifestyle. Some hosts do background checks and eviction history checks to ensure that the roommates you're living with are trustworthy individuals. When looking for a shared living arrangement, it's important to do your due diligence and make sure that you're comfortable with the living arrangement and the people you'll be living with.
