It’s official. The mattress in a box craze is taking Australia by storm. With 32 mattress in a box companies currently operating in Australia, consumers are spoilt for choice. It seems affordability and convenience are the main reasons why so many Australians are opting for ordering a new mattress online. Many are under $1000 and are delivered to your door in a compact box, which removes the time consuming ‘store to store’ shopping and pushy salespeople. The table below compares the current market in terms of price, trial period, and warranty periods:
Let’s take a look at some of Australia’s best mattress in a box products for 2018!
The Eva Mattress is a fantastic ‘all-rounder’ at an excellent price. It is comfortable, supportive, and build quality is outstanding for a mattress in a box.
Interestingly, the Eva Mattress is only one of several mattress in a box products (out of twenty-six) that contains a pocket spring system. On top of the 5 zone pocket springs sits a rather sophisticated comfort layer of Memory Foam, Latex, Micro Springs, and a High Density Foam. As we mentioned, this provides good spinal support, and also makes the Eva mattress very comfortable, with a spring-based feel similar to other more expensive mattresses.
The Eva Mattress stands up solidly in all five categories – comfort, spinal support, build quality, partner disturbance, and especially value for money. Its retail price listing is currently $850, and with a $100 coupon code, this comes down to $750 – which is well below the market average of $990. Not to mention its solid 120 night trial period and 12 year warranty. Congratulations to the Eva Mattress – a deserving winner in 2017-18!

The Sleeping Duck Pro Mattress has an outstanding level of build quality, possibly the best out of any mattress in a box product in Australia. The outer cover feels durable and expensive, the side handles are strongly attached, and the embroidery gives off a strong sense of class and quality.
The Sleeping Duck Pro Mattress is also very versatile with two firmness options available, a medium and a firm. If this doesn’t feel quite right, Sleeping Duck can send additional firmness options within the 100 night trial period. We were able to test out these additional pieces of foam (soft, medium, firm, extra firm) which gave different firmness levels, even in different parts of the mattress to offer more pressure relief for the hips and shoulders. So no matter what your preference is in terms of firmness, it appears this mattress has you well covered.
The Sleeping Duck Pro Mattress is one of the best mattress in a box products on the market in Australia. Our review team would certainly recommend giving it a try for the 100 nights. To see our full review, click here.
The Simba Hybrid Mattress was recently awarded ‘2018 Product of the Year’ by Kantar TNS, one of the largest market research agencies in the world. This mattress is very comfortable and luxurious and is perfect for those who prefer a softer more plush feel to their mattress. It has a sophisticated spring and foam combination inside, hence the name ‘hybrid‘. It is more expensive ($1199 for a queen size) than the average mattress in a box in Australia (around $990) but the price is somewhat reasonable when you consider the quality and unique soft and supportive feel. And with a 100 night trial period, it’s definitely worth a try! To see our full review of the Simba Hybrid Mattress, click here.
The Sleep & Co Hybrid Mattress has a comfortable top layer which also supports the spine very nicely. Interestingly, the Sleep & Co Hybrid Mattress is only one of only a few mattress in a box products that contains an inner spring system. This spring system provides very good spinal support and partner disturbance is minimal. Based on the quality of the mattress, and its beautiful mix of comfort and support, it presents good value for money at $1099, which can be reduced by $200 with a Bedbuyer coupon code. Overall one of the best mattress in a box products currently on the market. Sleep & Co also make a firmer, memory foam mattress which is also a good one.

The 624 Mattress is one of the the best quality products in the mattress in a box market. The quality of the materials used and the versatility in offering different sleeping surfaces make it a serious contender as one of the best mattress in a box products available in Australia. You can adjust the firmness level by flipping the top foam layer over, from a ‘6’ firmness (the firmer version) or to a ‘4’ (the softer version). Spinal support is excellent, particularly in the 4 version, and although there is some partner disturbance, for $799, this is as good a value mattress in a box that you will find.

The Onebed Mattress is a very good quality mattress in a box product. The top layer feels firm and dense and provides good spinal support. The latex top layer still manages to absorb body weight well, so the mattress is still nice and comfortable. Partner disturbance is quite minimal and for a springless mattress, the build quality is very good. If you like a firm, supportive mattress at a reasonable price, the Onebed mattress should definitely be considered. And with a 125 night trial, you’ve got nothing to lose.
