Koala Mattress Review
The Koala Mattress is a very comfortable, good quality mattress that is possibly the most popular mattress in a box product currently in Australia. The top layer has a slightly bouncy and rubbery feel to it, and it offers decent spinal support. We loved the Koala toy that came with the mattress – a very nice touch!
The current listing for a queen-sized Koala Mattress is $1050. The average price of all 25 mattress in a box products in Australia is $1024, making the Koala Mattress slightly above average in cost, but based on the quality of the mattress, it still presented reasonable value for money in context of other products in the market. And with a solid 120 night trial period, it is no wonder thousands of Australians have already opted for a mattress that is so… Australian!

FALL ASLEEP FASTER
The Koala Mattress – Built for comfort
We’ve engineered Kloudcell – a comfortable, breathable, open-cell foam that is refined into the ultimate comfort layer.
The Koala Mattress has a unique foam has been tailored to give the lush feel of memory foam and latex, but with breathability and bounce to avoid the sinking feeling and heat that comes with mattresses made from these materials.
WAKE UP REFRESHED
The Koala Mattress – All the support you need
Striking the perfect balance between sink and bounce is no easy task. Koala tailors the feel of the mattress across three dimensions to ensure your body is properly supported from head to toe.
The Koala Mattress also has Zero Disturbance technology to ensure you won’t be worried about waking your partner (or be bothered by a restless one!).
STAY ASLEEP LONGER
The Koala Mattress – A breath of fresh air
Our open-cell structure creates channels in the foam, which provides airflow and enables heat to escape. Even better, by minimising layers, we reduce glue, helping wick excess heat away from the body to keep you cool and comfortable.
WE GOT YOU COVERED
The Koala Mattress – If looks could kill
The Koala Mattress has a unique removable, washable cover makes it easy to keep it looking and feeling fresh.
Overall, we found the Koala Mattress to be a comfortable, good quality mattress that offers reasonable value for money. The one aspect which our judging panel felt was a little lacking was the level of spinal support. Nevertheless, the level of firmness of the Koala Mattress would still be adequate for many. It is also worth noting that Koala’s online marketing strategy seems to be the most effective out of over 50 mattress in a box companies. The Koala toy that came with the mattress was a very nice touch!
Comfort – 4.5/5
All of our expert reviewers agree that the Koala Mattress is very comfortable. The top layer had a nice and soft ‘springy’ feel, and it absorbed body weight very nicely. The Koala Mattress is certainly one of the most comfortable mattress in a box products we tested out.
Spinal Support – 3.5/5
The Koala Mattress has quite a unique feel in terms of support and pressure relief. In our experience, there is a range of personal preferences when it comes to a rubbery/bouncy feel or a more spongy/mould-like feel. We found the Koala Mattress to be more of a rubbery feel which is not always a bad thing, but we did find that it didn’t support the spine or body as well as some of the other mattresses in a box we tested, particularly in a side lying position. Having said that, the density of the foam in the top layer had a good density, so there was certainly no ‘sinking’ feeling.
Build Quality – 4/5
We all agreed that the Koala Mattress was well built and made from quality materials. The foams used appeared dense and robust, and the outer cover seemed durable.
Build Quality – 4/5
The amount of partner disturbance we noted on the Koala Mattress was minimal. There was a very low level of mattress movement detected but certainly not significant and as a result we rated this category highly.
Value for money – 3.5/5
The current listing for a queen-sized Koala Mattress is $1050. The average price of over 50 mattress in a box products in Australia is around $1000, making the Koala Mattress slightly above average in cost, but based on the quality of the mattress, it still presented reasonable value for money in context of other products in the market.
Please note: We don’t generally recommend mattress in a box products, (the Koala Mattress included) to go on an ‘adjustable base’ (a base that can be angled via a remote control). If a mattress in a box product is placed on an adjustable base, it is recommended that a person/s be lying on the mattress (and base) whilst making positional adjustments. We generally recommend a mattress in a box product to go on a solid ensemble base, or a slat base. If you have any queries about bed bases, please contact us.Add to favourites
