Sydney has that original digital vibe and has long been a hub for nomads and remote workers wishing to stay in coliving spaces.
Who wouldn’t want to experience work and social experiences in and around the world- famous Bondi Beach? With a vibrant start-up scene and many tech jobs, there are plenty of opportunities in Sydney, but the living costs can be very high. All of Sydney’s famous coffee shops and juice bars have high-speed WI-FI and there is no shortage of great meet-ups and events to meet people. And there is always the phenomenal surfing conditions to consider. There’s so much to do on your days off in Sydney, from tracking along the beach and Sydney Harbour, to hot air balloon rides over Camden Valley to paddling or boating under the Sydney Harbour Bridge, a.k.a. The Coat Hanger. Street art is also ubiquitous in Sydney, or you can discover local and international artists at the city’s many museums. There is even a museum for modern Chinese art.
