Next to Emma, Koala is also one of the most popular choices for many Australians. The reason being its ‘Kloudcell’ which is a support foam that allows airspace inside the foam. This breathable foam is ideal for the Aussie summer because of its heat-retaining design.
We all know how hot summer gets, and sometimes it can be sweltering to even lie down on our beds. That’s why luxury mattresses design foams to combat this effect.
The materials in this mattress were sourced in Australia, but Koala has moved production to China since we wrote this post. However, we haven’t noticed a change in the reviews from people buying the product. Through their mattress sales, a portion of their proceeds benefits the WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature), known for its conservation work with koalas. For more info read our Koala mattress review.

Why get a memory foam mattress
Memory foam conforms to your body closer than other mattress types—the hugging effect results in better spinal alignment and pressure relief when you sleep. Memory foam is excellent for minimal partner disturbance because the motion transfer is isolated to the point of pressure and gives little to no noise.
These qualities make memory foam superb for Aussies who are couples, especially if you wake up quickly due to noise or motion.
