Koala Soul Mate

Koala is one of Australia’s most popular bedding brands, and their Soul Mate mattress is their top of the line. The proprietary developed foams and materials are made with Aussie comfort in mind, and you get an industry-leading 120 night trial period.

Why Did We Like it?

It's 33cm deep with customisable comfort. You can change the feel of the mattress by unzipping it and flipping the top comfort layer. This changes the mattress to be softer or firmer, depending on your preference. 

Every layer in this mattress has exceptional functionality. However, we adore bamboo charcoal the most! It's antibacterial and perforated to increase airflow. Plus, this layer eliminates odours and relieves pressure. 

This is followed closely by the zoned adaptive foam springs, the first and only mattress in Australia to have this feature. Koala has developed this layer to keep the famous zero disturbance to a minimum while giving the mattress a bit of bounce. 


No movement. It has an anti-slip base, so it doesn’t move around at night. 

No bugs. The mattress has an anti-bacterial treatment to prevent little monsters. 

No nasties. The CertiPUR-US® certification ensures the mattress is free of nasty chemicals.

To top it off, Koala has partnered with WWF Australia, so every mattress purchase helps protect our koalas.

Emma Diamond Hybrid mattress - best rated luxury mattress

The Emma Diamond Hybrid mattress is another excellent option to relieve yourself from the regular discomfort and disturbances during sleep. It comes with an assortment of innovative features that always ensure a heavenly sleep. Each of these features is a result of extensive research and testing to facilitate faster and deeper sleep.

Why Did We Like it?

First things first, the Diamond Hybrid mattress consists of high-quality multi-layered foam that provides back support in 3 zones, thereby ensuring optimal cushioning. And the foam is adaptive to different postures so that it moulds to the body completely, facilitating maximum relaxation.

It also has individually encased springs like our previous pick that reduce motion transfer from one side to the other to minimise the impact of movement. Thus, your sleep remains undisturbed despite the frequent movements of your partner. These springs are even highly durable and provide improved breathability over other luxury mattresses available on the market.

The other big advantage is the presence of a Diamond Degree layer of Graphite foam. It dissipates excess self-produced heat to achieve the temperature ideal for sleep and that too, in a very short while. Naturally, you fall asleep within minutes of getting into bed and feel well-rested after waking up.


  • Optimal cushioning
  • Provides undisturbed sleep
  • Achieves ideal sleeping temperature
  • Helps fall asleep faster


  • Looks like a standard mattress

Dusk&Dawn Signature mattress - most expensive mattress Australia offers

Dusk & Dawn is known for its range of ultra-comfortable luxury mattresses, bed bases, and pillows. And the Signature is no different as it lets you enjoy a very relaxing and peaceful sleep each time. The brand even offers a comfort guarantee of 100 days to ensure ultimate user satisfaction.

Why Did We Like it?

The 38-cm high Signature luxury mattress features a surface made from a silk/wool blend that's much lighter, softer, and finer than just a wool make. Thus, it's crucial to providing the ideal comfort during sleep.

To ensure complete body support, it uses a double-decker system of pocket coils with 1000 encased springs. This system also targets five zones of the body to ensure effective body contouring while minimising the disturbance due to your partner's movement.

The other layers in the mattress are Opulent Eco-Air comfort layers that utilise Italian Graph-Tek technology. These work to relieve pressure points during sleep and strike the right balance between body contouring and luxury. This technology works by infusing graphite minerals in superior-grade anti-microbial memory foam, thereby facilitating safer and more breathable sleep.

Lastly, the use of premium-quality comfort-stretch fabric provides a luxurious feel and makes it comfortable to the touch.


  • Light and soft silk/wood blend
  • Effective body contouring

Newentor Hybrid Mattress

There are numerous reasons why we recommend this mattress, including its OEKO-TEX and CertiPUR-US certifications, as well as the antibacterial and breathable carbon fibre cover, which ensures an allergy-free and hygienic sleeping environment.

Underneath that is the eco-friendly cotton pad with soft but supportive memory foam. Then below a few more layers of foam, you have pocket springs. This allows more airflow through the mattress resulting in a healthier and more hygienic sleeping environment, particularly for those suffering from asthma or allergies.

Why Should You Choose It?

A) Relieves sore joints

With 7 layers of support, you get a highly comfortable 'ache-free' sleep because the mattress cradles and supports your body's natural alignment. Plus, no matter how much your partner moves, you'll never be disturbed while you sleep with this supportive layer.

B) Breathable, Dry, and Cool

The breathable materials and springs increase airflow throughout the layers. Keeping you cooler at night.

Also, it's double certified, so it's environmentally, ethically, and sustainably conscious from raw materials to delivery. You’ll find no solvents or harsh chemicals in the bed.


  • Popular brand (new to Australia)
  • 120 night trial
  • Premium bamboo charcoal fabric cover

Sleeping Duck SD MACH II

Lastly, we've picked this mattress from Sleeping Duck that offers ultimate strength and durability in addition to the desired comfort. Its components are designed to retain a new look despite years of regular use, while the price offered is also relatively budget-friendly than other in-store options. So, let's move on to find out more about all its features.

Why Did We Like it?

To begin with, the high-density Australian-made Antigravity Surface Foam of this mattress is highly porous and breathable. Interestingly, the layer gets its name from the weightless feeling it creates, distributing the body weight evenly and releasing the tension buildup in the body. This ensures you wake up feeling more fit, healthy, and rejuvenated every morning.

Coupled with this is a bamboo knitted cover that provides incredible softness and allows adequate sleeper movability. It's also built to resist pilling, so you can always machine-wash it as part of the regular maintenance requirement.

The remaining layers of the mattress include the ComponentAdapt and the Motherboard layer, which together facilitate adequate body support. While the former consists of high-density foam, the latter comes with tempered springs of steel that act as tailored support zones for specific body parts.


  • Highly porous and breathable foam
  • Customisable layer
  • Adequate sleeper movability


  • Expensive
