Owned and operated by Samantha Davies, Platypus Coworking offers a professional fully-equipped workspace for small business owners and freelancers to escape the home office, conduct client meetings and develop strong business relationships.

“There’s high demand for affordable coworking spaces and accessible office facilities in the heart of Ballarat, particularly as our population grows and new businesses move here from Melbourne. Our modern renovation of an upper storey space aligns with the city’s efforts to revitalise the CBD by repurposing existing buildings”, Ms Davies said.

Vastly different to the tech-focussed start-up incubators and high-end corporate offices available in Ballarat, Platypus Coworking is a flexible way for business owners to work in a suitable central location without high overheads, long lease contracts or unhelpful distractions.
