Australia has a unique set of bed (mattress) sizes that differ from those in the United States and in the United Kingdom, but are very similar to those in New Zealand. Most mattresses in Australia are available in 5 sizes – single, king single, double, queen, and king size. Some mattresses are also available in a long single and a super king size.
Many bed bases will be the same size as the mattress, but some bases may be a little wider or longer so keep this in mind when assessing your bedroom space.
