Richmond will stay in Sydney for the week before heading to Perth for the Dreamtime clash against Essendon.
The Tigers flew up the injured Shane Edwards from a locked-down Melbourne on Sunday, giving the silky midfielder every last opportunity to continue his ankle rehab at home, and he is "highly probable" to make his return next week.
"We'll head over there on Friday (for a Saturday game) and give it a crack against a rampaging Essendon, they're probably one of the form sides of the competition, having won their last three games on the trot," Hardwick said following Richmond's 28-point win over Adelaide.
"In these times, clubs are very good at looking after each other with regards to training venues and helping each other out. GWS were fantastic with us this week.
"We'll move hotels to Coogee, I think, and then probably train more at the SCG, we're not completely sure. There's more of a collegial feel where sides are willing to help each other out at this time.
"We had a scrimmage with GWS yesterday with our younger players, so they're all up here."
Champion veteran forward Jack Riewoldt turned the game against Adelaide on its head in the final quarter on Sunday, taking a screamer running back with the flight, before booting three goals in the final 10 minutes.
"It was amazing. In fairness, I was calling him out of that mark, saying 'don't go, don't go,', I thought the game was probably over," Hardwick said with a laugh.
"But that's what [they] do, they continue to go back with the flight of the ball no matter what time of the game or what the score is."
Hardwick was full of praise for second-game key forward Callum Coleman-Jones, who kicked four goals in his first AFL match since receiving a 10-game ban for a COVID-19 breach last year.
"It's good reward for a guy who's had his ups and downs. We stick with our people, we back them in. He's put in a power of work both on and off the field.
"It was great reward for 'CJ' personally, but also great reward for our organisation, backing our people.
"We always knew he could play the game, it was just getting him into the side. Unfortunately, Tom (Lynch, knee) going out injured has provided an opportunity for CJ to show his wares."
