Coliving in Brisbane

Brisbane has become a trendy hotspot for remote workers looking for coliving arrangements in Australia. It’s known for a distinctive Queenslander architecture style historically made from timber. Remote workers covet communities living in the Queenslander style residences, and coliving makes it more affordable. You’ll find that many Brisbane residences are constructed with stilts—that’s because Brisbane is built on a flood plain and experienced a major flood as recently as 2011. Most residents in Brisbane live in houses rather than apartments, and it’s considered quite normal for digital nomads to rent homes for short-term or long-term stays, but most choose a specific coliving space so they can meet other like-minded people. You’ll encounter lamingtons here — after all, Brisbane is where they were invented. Lamingtons are treats involving sponge cake, chocolate, and coconut. The city has a relaxed pace compared to other environments, but still offers plenty to do. You may also enjoy shopping on Queen Street. Long before Queen Street was a trendy hub for shopping, it was a barracks for convicts shipped off to Australia from Europe. Over a thousand convicts lived there in the 1830s.

Finding affordable communal living in Brisbane

Finding affordable housing in Brisbane 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 Brisbane. 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.

Co-living places people from different backgrounds together and encourages them to interact, collaborate and form new friendships.
