From months a year, to days a week, or just hours a day, Confluence desk deals are available in three simple choices to suit your requirements.
We all know you cannot simply buy time, but you can buy a service that means the time you spend at work will be much more productive and more social. Confluence Coworking offers you that service as a cost effective way to improve your productivity and professional social contacts in Whanganui.
Confluence Coworking space is designed to offer every desk enough space to be private and comfortable, so the number of desks available are limited and in the case of Ongarue River or Purua Stream deals, will vary throughout the week and day. Our Whakapapa River deals are limited even fewer desks and often sold out as they provide permanent access for coworkers requiring a space at months or years at a time.
Also don't worry if none of our three desk deals seems to exactly fit your requirements, as we can offer our regular coworkers deals that include multiples or parts of these rates.

This Purua Stream provides a full working day of 8 hours for just $27 inclusive of GST. That's enough time to crack on with an overdue project, or maybe work on developing your business for a dedicated day in a special space, without interruption or the same four walls you're used to. It's also a great option for people passing through Whanganui that need somewhere professional to work and be professional social with other coworkers.
Purua Stream deals can also be added to an Ongarue River deal to provide a flexible and cost effective way to cowork for longer than 80 hours each month, but not permanently, at Confluence.
It is easy to book a Purua Stream desk online:
We name our coworking deals after the tributaries of the Whanganui River. The number of hours access each deal offers reflects the physical size of each tributary river or stream that flows into the Whanganui River. For example our popular Ongarue River deal takes its name from the Ongarue River tributary, which is being larger than the Purua Stream but is also smaller than the Whakapapa River.

We are always ready to listen to feedback, positive, constructive, or negative. Here's a sample from our coworkers.
Confluence is my happy/go to space when I'm in need of a great work environment or facility. Everyone is always so welcoming and helpful and all the facilities I may need are there. You are made to feel like part of it and included rather than just renting a desk space. - Love it!
Our position on social media
Confluence and Double Farley Ltd choose not to use Facebook or similar social media platforms primarily due to their failure to curb hate speech and failure to encourage an open, fair and respectful environment. We currently still use Google for our email and other services, but are constantly reviewing our approach.
We do choose to advertise in and support Whanganui's local printed newspapers, with a recent campaign in the River City Press entertainment section for Confluence Cinema.
Coworking at Confluence is driven principally by our value of collaboration. This is organically experienced amongst coworkers; independent workers, small businesses remote workers, entrepreneurs, start-ups, creatives, and other interested locals.
We're proud to make it known that 100% of the events and happenings at Confluence are fully funded by the income generated from our coworkers and ticketed events. We receive no funding from council or government and are fully independent to choose what we do. Therefore everyone using the facility helps build Whanganui community and this is a value held close to everyone at Confluence.
Confluence sends out monthly newsletters to people we have on our signup list.
You can also use our simple form to send us feedback, including anonymously if you wish.
