An online platform showcasing Australia’s most beautiful places to work and stay
With flexible work options reshaping the way we work, new online platform Work From Here is giving employees the chance to discover some of Australia’s most beautiful places to work and stay.
Thanks to the sudden shift to remote and hybrid working, the flexible work revolution is here to stay and Work From Here is encouraging Australians to travel the country with a different purpose - by taking their day job on the road to live and work in a new environment.
Showcasing more than 170 unique properties specifically suited to remote working, each of the Work From Here properties has been carefully selected based on their suitability as a great place to live and work. Key factors essential to remote working have been considered such as phone reception, number of available workstations, NBN connection and proximity to the best local cafes and gyms making it easier than ever to pack up and hit the road.
According to Work From Here Founder, Dave Humphreys, Work From Here gives people the chance to change more than just their desktop wallpaper.
“Work From Here is for new travellers who want to combine flexibility, productivity and immersion into a new community. It’s about giving Aussies the chance to try living and working somewhere different for a few days or even a few weeks,” Dave said.
“The new online directory is great not only for employees looking for a change but also for local communities because it brings investment and year-round sustainable tourism as a result of longer stays to regions that may have otherwise been overlooked.”
“The idea for Work From Here was born after Australia’s first lockdown when I took the opportunity to work from the Snowy Mountains. Doing so made me realise just how incredible the change of scenery was for my productivity, mental health and general wellbeing,” he said.
No matter what you’re looking for, whether it’s a quiet, inspirational space with stunning views or reliable internet connection in a unique location, Work From Here has done the hard work and hand selected the best properties for working remotely around the country.
