As we reopen, we will:

Here's what we ask of you: - As you arrive at Platypus wash you hands in the kitchen before proceeding further into the building.

- Please limit any meetings or guest visits to only those that are absolutely necessary. If a meeting can be done over the phone or via video conferencing, we encourage you to use those avenues.

- While meeting with guests, please feel free to use the conference rooms, kitchen, or coworking areas and maintain a distance of 1.5m between everyone.

- Clean your shared desk and surfaces before and after you use them

- Stay home if you feel sick and encourage your guests to do the same

- Communicate with us. This isn't forever, but it's the new normal for the foreseeable future. We want to know how YOU want to work and we realise that some adjustments may need to be made as time goes on. Please feel free to email or talk to Sam to let her know how we can help you feel safe and comfortable moving forward.

On Monday 23rd March we made the decision to close the doors to the public from Tuesday 24th March at 9am. Everyone with 24/7 access (Dedicated Desk and Private Offices) can come and go as they require. We have enough space to allow people to be spaced out as required. I (Samantha Davies, Founder) moved to working from home so the site is unsupervised, although daily cleaning is still taking place.

On the website we are temporarily not taking bookings for tours or the conference room and day passes cannot be purchased.

If you are an essential service and require access to Platypus Coworking, we have the space and NBN internet ready for you to stay working. Please call me on 0421 140 854 or email
