We get it. You want a mattress that is Australian made, and there's plenty of benefits what come with it like the greater transparency on the construction and materials, higher quality materials, Australian chemical checks. Also, it helps provide more jobs to Australians.
There are various Australian made mattresses on the market but sometimes it can be deceiving to find them with companies saying designed in Australia, appearing to be Australian made but looking at the small print it says made in China.
Choosing a mattress can sometimes be a challenging experience, especially when you're trying to filter the noise. So, we made this guide to cut through the marketing jargon and quickly find a bed in a box that's Australian made.
How we made our choices
We went through the Australian bed market, finding all the mattress in a box brands. Then we looked through all the marketing material and history and made a list of the Australian made mattress, we then placed them into separate categories to make your choice easier. When purchasing a new bed make sure you check it fits your room, we have made a helpful Australian bed sizes guide also for this purpose.
When we review the mattress brands we always look at real customer reviews, independent reviews, manufacture details, and drill down into the facts, price, trial period, features, materials, sleep quality, and much more.
Right, let's jump into the top picks.
Dusk and Dawn
Topping our list for the best Australian made mattress is from Dusk and Dawn. They have 3 different variations the Signature, Premiere, and Essential. Made in Melbourne, they are 100% Australian-made under the licence of Comfort Sleep, which has been making mattresses for over 40 years.
The most crucial point to be aware of is that these are not bed-in-a-box mattresses. Consequently, none of the materials is compressed, rolled, and stored for an extended period. One thing, however, unites them. Instead of going through a retailer, they sell directly to you. As a result, you get a higher quality mattress without the added cost. It's a win-win.
The premiere mattress has 6 layers, excluding the firm edge support, premium knit, and outer fabric shell encasing the layers. For a fresher and more hygienic sleep, the top comfort layer is Australian wool, a breathable and naturally antibacterial and anti-dust mite. Dusk and Dawn use locally sourced Australian wool to support our Aussie farmers!
We have two more layers, the eco-air & elasta-gel layers - the first provides additional comfort by allowing airflow throughout the mattress, and the second provides pressure relief. The next layer is premium comfort foam, followed by premium high-density foam - The A-Grade comfort foam provides transitional comfort between the above and below layers. The high resilience foam, because the foam sits on top of the springs, is firmer.
Finally, the base has an independently enclosed Pocket Coil System, which targets five zones to support and contour your body more effectively. In addition, the independent pocket springs minimise partner disturbance.
All the Australian wools and foams are GECA Health certified. The mattress gets delivered straight to your door, plus you get a 100-day comfort guarantee.

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.
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.
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.
