Google has long run their Australian operations out of their Sydney based office, but today the company has expanded to a new office in Melbourne.
The new office, located in Collins St in Melbourne, will provide ‘support, policy sales, marketing, cloud computing services’, with seating for 100 staff, though this could be expanded in the future.
According to Sean McDonell, Google Melbourne site lead ‘The new Melbourne office demonstrates our long-term commitment to businesses and partners in Victoria’.

Google has re-iterated that Sydney will remain Google’s Australian headquarters. Google in Sydney is currently trying to expand from their current Pyrmont based offices. Google recently completed a purchase of the Channel 7 building also in Pyrmont, though are reportedly also eyeing another location near Central railway station.
Though not open to the public, if you’re in Melbourne maybe you can stop by next time to see if there’s anything ‘Googley’ in the foyer.
