Koala mattress (Australian mattress company) [no longer Australian made]
You can't get more Australian than the Koala mattress, the bed was originally created by two Bryon bay locals Mitch and Danny and they still make the bed in Aus.
Koala is also a partner of WWF, helping the ongoing habitat loss for koalas and preventing the extinction of the green turtles. So every time you buy a Koala mattress you are also helping the Australian wildlife.
Moving on to the bed itself, the Koala is a dual foam layer bed with a specially designed 'Kloudcell' foam top, which is made to be very breathable and embracing. Then the bottom layer that's firmer to add support and durability to the bed. Overall, this gives the bed a medium firmness bed that many Australians love.
The 3 brands below are no longer in production, not many Aussie made companies survived the pandemic.
Calming Blankets have developed Delta Sleep from locally sourced materials so its 100% Aussie owned and made. It’s also GECA certified and is environmentally friendly, with no solvents or harsh chemicals used in the manufacturing process.
Laying down on the mattress gives you pure pressure relief with zero disturbance. The top layer is an adaptive 7cm foam layer and the bottom Intellicool foam has a breathable cell structure that dissipates heat.
Encasing the two layers is the Tencel® cover, which is environmentally friendly. Tencel stretch knits are soft, moisture-wicking, and highly breathable.
As an added bonus, you get a 120-night trial or your money back, a 10-year comfort guarantee, and free delivery to doorstep.

Hugo is an all-foam 4 layers mattress, the top layer is a natural latex which gives a nice bounce to the bed, as a bonus latex is naturally hypoallergenic which means it's great for stopping allergies and dust mites.
The other layers are memory foam, transition foam, high-density foam. This makes the Hugo not to firm and not too soft with great motion isolation from the memory foams but retaining a bounce from the top latex comfort layer.
Hugo has same-day delivery in the Melbourne metro area and very quick delivery to the rest of Australia.
No longer in production.
Sommuto is a multi-layered foam mattress that uses hypoallergenic and environmentally-friendly materials. The top comfort layer MEMair Breeze™ has all the benefits of memory foam but with the addition of the ultra breathability design which negates all the drawback of memory foam getting too hot.
The Sommuto mattress is owned, created, and manufactured exclusively in Australia.
No longer in production.
Which mattresses are made in Australia?
When it comes to Australian made mattress brands, there's a mix of local and international manufacturing. For instance, Dusk and Dawn is a standout brand that proudly makes its mattresses in Australia, representing a true Aus made mattress.
But what about other popular brands? You might wonder, where are Sleeping Duck mattresses made? Their manufacturing process is quite unique. Some of their foams are produced in Australia, but they are then shipped to China for the final mattress assembly. After being put together, these mattresses are shipped back to Australia.
In contrast, Emma mattresses hail from Germany, while both Koala and Onebed have shifted their production to China. This mix of local and overseas manufacturing showcases the varied approaches within the mattress industry.
