Queen and King mattresses are currently fully stocked and can be dispatched within 1-4 days or ready for pickup straight away.

All other sizes are “custom made” – we cut your latex down from larger sheets, while we custom cut and sew your mattress cover from a thin but strong Australian natural calico cotton. We can also do other sizes on request.

May 2022 Update: our seamstress is away, so all new custom-cut mattress covers (orders other than Queen or King) will not be completed until late June. However, you could still receive the latex first and use a mattress protector or fitted sheet above and below the latex layers in the meantime, and we can send your mattress cover once it is ready (just leave a note at checkout with this request).

Delivery: once your mattress is dispatched, orders outside of Perth take around 4-8 days to arrive, depending on your distance from WA.

Perth Delivery: For deliveries within 1 hour of Perth, we use a local delivery driver, who usually heads out on Saturday’s from 10.00am until early afternoon. An alternate day can be arranged.

Perth Pickup: You can opt to collect your order from our warehouse in Wangara for $100 off per base and mattress. Collection is simple and easy, we’ll notify you when it is ready and you can pick up during the following hours to ensure a staff member is available:

  • Monday to Saturday: 10am to 4pm
Returns: If you aren’t completely happy, we accept returns. We will refund you in full minus the following maximum return delivery costs:
  • 2 Layer Mattress: Capped at $200
  • 3 Layer Mattress: Capped at $250
  • Any delivery fees to non-metro areas are non-refundable.
 

Bed Base Requirements – Due to having no firm polyurethane foam or spring base, a 100% latex mattress must have a firm, flat, aerated base supporting it (like ours). We require at least 1 grounded central support beam for Queens (2 for Kings), while any slats must be 5-9cm wide and be spaced 3-5cm apart (get in touch if you have something else).

Weight & Dimensions

When it comes to mattresses, density = durability + quality. While most ‘mattresses in a box’ use foam with a density of between 15 – 25kg/m3 (which is lucky to last a couple of years) – our latex ranges from 70 – 85kg/m3! 
 
Below are the dimensions of each layer, while our quilted cover adds roughly 1-2cm of height and 2kg.
 
  • Queen Medium: 17.5kg (153 x 204 x 7.5cm)
  • Queen Firm: 20kg (153 x 204 x 7.5cm)
  • King Medium: 21kg (183 x 204 x 7.5cm)
  • King Firm: 23.5kg (183 x 204 x 7.5cm)

The Simple, Supportive, 100% Organic Latex Mattress

Organic latex is simply the world’s #1 eco-conscious, high-performance mattress material – far superior to springs or foams.

Supportive

With its unique bounce and resiliency, our organic latex gives you consistent and comfortable support across your whole body, to help alleviate any aches and pains for a restful sleep.

Durable

Compared to synthetic latex and foams which lose their bounce in just a few months or years, our natural latex scores 100/100 for durability, meaning no sags for at least 20 years (guaranteed) and it will feel new and fresh for years to come.

Organic & Healthy

Latex is naturally derived from the milky sap of rubber trees. It is naturally resistant to moisture, mould and dust-mites to give a healthy and allergy-free sleep. It is also fully biodegradable, so you no longer need to dispose a mattress made from metals and plastics every 3-7 years.

Temperature-Balancing

Contrary to what some believe, the open-cell structure of each layer promotes great air-ventilation, ensuring our latex mattress does not retain heat from your body while you sleep.

Why Latex?

From over 30 years of experience selling and researching all different types of mattresses, we’ve put together the comparison table below to provide an honest overview of the most popular mattress materials on the market. Almost all major “mattress-in-a-box” brands use Polyfoams, sometimes adding a thin layer of Memory Foam or Latex too (usually synthetic latex). If you disagree with anything in the table, we’re always open to have a chat about it, just send through an email!

Choosing Your Latex Mattress

Go for a 2 layer (16cm) if you generally sleep without pain, mainly sleep on your back/front, or prefer a firm mattress.

Go for a 3 layer (24cm) if you sometimes sleep with pain, sleep on your side, or prefer a ‘luxury’ mattress at a more standard height.

Our mattresses contain layers of latex in 2 different firmness levels (‘Medium’ and ‘Firm’), which can be rearranged at home to refine your comfort later. Even our 2 layer mattress has more actual latex in it than almost any traditional “latex” mattress you’ll find in a store (as they usually only include a token 2.5cm layer inside them). Further, our new Mixed mattress allow you to choose and adjust the firmness between you and your sleeping partner! Plus, within 100 nights, you can exchange a layer with us for no charge at all (or even send the whole thing back for a full refund, minus return postage costs).

When choosing your firmness, is important to understand Natural Latex is very different to other materials. Its unique bounce means you can go for a slightly softer, more contouring firmness but still feel fully supported, while its unique durability means you can sleep on it for 20+ years, with full confidence it won’t feel firmer or be less-supportive over time. On top of this, most of our mattresses are able to be made firmer at home (but not softer), which is why we suggest tending on the side of slightly too soft, rather than too firm.

Your personal ‘feel’ preference is usually the most important factor. You might know you’ll like a mattress that feels plush and soft with a little more give to it – or you’ll like sleeping on something firmer. Each layer density will determine the overall feel, so having a Firm layer closer to the top will give you a more lifted, supportive feel – whereas each Medium layer would give a slightly more plush, sinking-in feel.

Side sleepers will need their hips and shoulders to sink into the mattress to contour to their body, whereas back or front sleepers need firmer support to keep their hips from sinking in too much.

This isn’t a strict point, but our general recommendation is if you’re under 60kg you’ll most likely prefer a softer mattress, whereas if you’re over 80kg we would recommend something firmer.

Although a mattress is not a magic solution, if you do have some pain, the right firmness is important. A soft mattress can take pressure off your shoulders, a firm mattress can increase support on your back, whereas hip pain could either mean your hips are sinking in too far or not enough – and therefore you’ll likely need a mattress somewhere in the middle.

Frequently Asked Questions

We don’t hide behind technical lingo – we simply use the highest-quality, most-trusted natural materials available on the worldwide market today. Beyond our many eco-accreditations, importantly, all our main materials are 100% sustainably-sourced – meaning there are no lasting effects on the environment.

See below for our most commonly asked questions about our mattress!

A latex mattress does not have any springs or coils in it. Unlike an innerspring mattress, a natural latex mattress is made out of one type of material: latex. This material is a natural product that comes from the sap of the rubber tree. This milky sap is eco-consciously processed into the mattress layers.

  • It returns to its original shape almost immediately – compared to synthetic latex and standard foams, the unique material of latex means that once pressure is removed it remains its shape, giving you full body-contoured support the moment you move, without creating pain-points or letting you sink into your mattress. This means that latex can help alleviate aches and pains with the correct alignment support.
  • Latex retains its shape for 20 years, where other foams will start to significantly lose softness and support after just a few months or years. 
  • Natural Latex is inherently resistant to moisture, mould, mildew, and dust mites and can mean a much healthier and allergy-free sleep. Further, contrary to what some believe, the particularly open-cell structure allowed by the quality of natural latex promotes great air-ventilation – the best defence against ‘sleeping-hot’ and ensuring your mattress does not retain heat from your body
On average, pure 100% latex mattress are in general more expensive than a standard innerspring mattress. This can be due to its extensive ethical sourcing methods – but since the material is significantly more durable (for 20 years guaranteed), it holds far more benefits over a longer period of time than your standard mattress which may need to be replaced.
 

Organic and Natrual Latex

As of March 2022, we now only offer GOLS certified and eco-INSTITUT organic latex for our mattresses from our manufacturer in Sri Lanka. The latex layers are 100% organic and natural latex with no added petroleum-based or synthetic latex, also meeting strict standards for pollutants and harmful emissions. This ensures there are no additives in our latex that could damage the quality, consistency or healthiness of your mattress. Our latex has also passed stringent durability tests, allowing us to offer a 20 year warranty. Further, our latex uses the ‘Dunlop’ method of production due to its lower environmental footprint and durability advantages over the ‘Talalay’ method. 

  • GOLS certified (Global Organic Latex Standard) for materials and processing global standards for organic latex.
    GOLS certification also focuses on human health, safety and welfare, and environment in the manufacturing process of organic latex 
  • Quality tested by eco-INSTITUT® (Germany) for containing 100% natural latex rubber free of harmful pollutants and emissions 
  • Supplier (Sri Lanka): Eco Latex 
  • Durability tested (scoring 100/100) for little resilience or firmness-loss after 30,000 load cycles of 140kg (TUV EN 1957-2015 tested in Netherlands)
  • See blow for our Density (D) and Indentation Load Deflection (ILD) ratings for each layer:
      • Medium Dunlop Latex – D70 – ILD 18-25
      • Firm Dunlop Latex – D85 – ILD 26-3

In short, yes!

Our pure Latex mattress layers are designed to be supportive, durable and comfortable – making them slightly more heavy-duty than other mattresses. But, we offer our mattresses in a simple 2 or 3 layer system, so you can add your layers one by one (making this much easier to manage, than one full spring mattress!).

When you receive your Latex Mattress layers, they arrive in a vacuum-sealed package which is easily transportable. Lay out your Organic Cotton Mattress Cover first, then you can open, and lay out each layer to suit your desired firmness – the final step is to zip them up!

  • Click here to view our Latex Mattress Assembly Instructions + Care
  • For 2-layer mattresses, unless you know you want a firmer mattress, the majority of customers would suit a Medium (2 layers of Medium). Due to the quality of our natural latex, this provides a great balance of a soft feel but generous support (with 15cm of latex!). However, if you know you like firm, go with a Medium-Firm – and you then also have the option to flip the layers it if it still not firm enough. In particular, back or front-sleepers and heavier people may suit a firmer mattress. 
    * Note: You can request Firm/Firm, but we strongly recommend trying in-store first.
  • For 3-layer mattresses, the options can go softer, while still providing full support. This allows for even greater ‘give’ in the mattress for a more-luxurious feel with more support (22.5cm of pure latex) than it’s 2-layer equivalent. This is especially true in softer mattresses, where the extra layer allows for a more gradual and supportive change from firm at the bottom to the softer comfort layers at the top. 
    * Note: We don’t recommend 3 layers of Firm.
  • However… Comparing standard foam or spring mattresses to the feel of latex is difficult. Your old mattress may have developed a ‘sinking-in’ feeling compared to the quality and bounce of latex – so some may find it feels a little too firm to begin with. We recommend allowing for the settling in period of around 10 days to get used to. This is why we also offer a 100-Night Comfort Guarantee just in case you need to adjust your firmness!
  • If you like firmer mattresses, generally sleep without pain, or on a tighter budget; go for a 2-layer.
  • If you like softer mattresses, have some back or hip pain, or prefer a plusher, ‘luxury-feel’; go for a 3-layer

About our 100-Night Comfort Guarantee

The layers are not glued together meaning you can unzip the cover and rearrange the layers. However, keep in mind you can only make your mattress firmer, but not softer – we recommend choosing a slightly softer mattress if you’re not sure. Give each configuration a go for at least 10 nights, then within 100 Nights you can swap any Medium or Firm layer with us, or return if it’s not perfect.

All natural/organic latex comes with an odour of some strength, but ours is very low and dissipates over time – generally a week or 2 and it would almost be gone. Most people don’t notice it at all. Our odour is graded at 2.5 out of 6, which is between these 2 grades:

  • 2 perceptible, not bothering
  • 3 clearly perceptible, not bothering

Other mattress materials, such as cotton and foam blends, can sometimes trap heat because it lacks proper air ventilation so it can feel hotter for some people sleeping at night.

Because Latex is quite durable, some synthetic latex mattresses will trap heat (because a lot are made with some composite layers). The good news is, with our pure latex, we have designed them with air ventilation holes in every layer – this allows for body temperature regulating, and helps to prevent heat being trapped within the mattress while you sleep. 

The open-cell structure allows Natural Latex to dissipate heat build-up during the night, away from the sleeping surface.

When it comes to mattresses, density = durability (and quality). While most “mattresses in a box” use foam with a density of between 15-20kg/m3 (which is lucky to last a couple of years) – our latex ranges from 75 to 85kg/m3!

Below is each individual layer:

  • Queen Medium: 17.5-19kg (153 x 204cm)
  • Queen Firm: 20-21.5kg (153 x 204cm)
  • King Medium: 21-22.5kg (183 x 204cm)
  • King Firm: 23.5-25kg (183 x 204cm)

This weight includes the 1.5kg Organic Cotton Mattress Cover, included with all mattress orders.

  • 2-Layer System = 15cm of 100% Latex
  • 3-Layer System = 22.5cm of 100% Latex

As our Latex Mattresses have individual internal layers, they aren’t glued together – this means you can remove, swap, or relocate each layer at any time.

Click here to watch a short video on how we wrap an individual layer for transport. Apply the same method for all layers (2 or 3).

You Will Need:

  • Cling Wrap, String, or Cable tie – Mainly anything that will hold the layer together. We prefer Cling Wrap as it sticks to itself.
  • 240L Plastic Bag: Not totally necessary, this is just to keep the latex protected during transport, or you can use to vacuum-pack if you need to compress the layer.

1x rolled layer is approximately 80cm x 80cm, not vacuum-packed. If your rear seats go down in your car, you could fit 5 or 6 layers.

Our Latex Mattresses come included with our Organic Cotton Cover, which top layer unzips on all four sides for complete removal. This cover aids in the best protection for the latex layers beneath. This top layer can be cold-washed only with mild detergent. Air dry. Do not tumble dry. The cover may shrink after first wash, but will stretch back out. 

In the event your latex layer needs to be cleaned, spot clean with a small amount of mild detergent and warm water. Wipe away the excess with a towel. It is important to ensure that the latex layer is completely dry before placing your sheets on top or sleeping on it. Using a hand-held blow dryer for fast dry time. Elevate the area with a platform beneath it to ensure air ventilation can move through if necessary.

Excellent product and service! We had intended to update our traditional futon mattress, but after trying the medium-firm all latex (3 layer) product decided to go with with that instead. We prefer a mattress that is on the firm side, so the adjustment time was one sleep! We are extremely happy that we changed our mind and went with the latex choice. The showroom is small and on two levels and, more importantly, the service was excellent with no pressure - only helpful advice and useful information. Because we picked up the mattress ourselves we saved $100 that otherwise would have been a delivery fee. We genuinely highly recommend the product and Quokka Beds as the supplier.

Real honest quality latex mattresses - doesn't get better!! We bought a King 3-layer 100% latex mattress (medium) 2 months ago and we're absolutely loving it. We've both had bad backs from using spring mattresses and after a few messages with the people at Quokka, we decided on the Medium firmness option - where we also knew we had the option of moving the layers around to make it firmer if need be! But after a couple days, we couldn't decide if it was too firm or too soft for us - so we kept it how it is!! Our back pain has slowly faded to nothing and we definitely can't see any sags or bumps at all - and really don't expect it to. The huge 20-year warranty is reassuring too. And we both love how it uses all natural and sustainable ingredients - pure latex, nothing else!! Our dream mattress at a good price. Thank you

Simply Fantastic! This mattress has the perfect amount of natural flexibility whilst still retaining firmness. I have had spinal surgery and it's a positive fit for me, my partner had scoliosis and she also is very happy.with it too. I envision this being a long lasting and very durable bed. We are mostly side sleepers, and have found this is excellent for all sleeping positions.

My back and Neck thank you After years of sleeping on the same mattress, I finally switched to a Latex Quokka Bed. I am so glad I did but regret I didn't do this sooner, to be honest. I have had such bad neck and back problems lately and countless sleep disrupted nights, and I haven't known why. After changing to this bed, I have had my first sleep-in where I didn't want to leave the bed in the morning! My neck and back feel so much better and I feel like I genuinely am excited to go to bed at night. Thanks guys, you are miracle workers!!

Great product - perfect sleep. Have had our mattress for a month or so. We're very happy with the support provided and the level of firmness. Love the flexibility of the three layers allowing us to experiment with different layer combinations.
We've been getting very good sleeps.

About Our Stretchy Organic Cotton Covers

Why do you offer 2 covers for this size?

We are always looking for ways to improve, which is why we worked hard to create a quilted cover, that looks better and more like what most customers expect a mattress to look like. However, it meant we have some very good quality stock leftover. Rather than put it to waste, we decided to offer it at a small discount to those who want it. Further, due to worldwide shortages and container delays, we may run out of stock of our Quilted covers, and may only be able to offer other covers for some sizes.

How is the ‘Stretchy’ cover different?

The main difference is simply what they look like. Both covers are made from 100% Organic Cotton, and feel the same on the latex (acting as a minimal comfort layer to protect and hold the latex in place), both have zips on 3 sides and both are cold-machine washable. However, the Stretchy cover is much more stretchy, so it can actually be a little easier to put the mattress together. And you can always switch to a Quilted cover later if you wish, which we would do for half-price (Queen $240 $120 or King $290 $145). Thanks for your support!

Natural Latex is very different to other materials. Its unique bounce means you can go for a slightly softer, more contouring firmness but still feel fully supported, while its unique durability means you can sleep on it for 20+ years, with full confidence it won’t feel firmer or be less-supportive over time. On top of this, most of our mattresses are able to be made firmer at home (but not softer), which is why we suggest erring on the side of too soft, rather than too firm. Often, our customers thank us for it.

Your personal ‘feel’ preference is often the most important factor. You might know you’ll like a mattress that feels plush and soft with a little more give to it – or you’ll like sleeping on something firmer. Each layer density will determine the overall feel, so having a Firm layer closer to the top will give you a more lifted, supportive feel – whereas each Medium layer would give a slightly more plush, sinking-in feel.

Side sleepers will need their hips and shoulders to sink into the mattress to contour to their body, whereas back or front sleepers need firmer support to keep their hips from sinking in too much.

This isn’t a strict point, but our general recommendation is if you’re under 60kg you’ll most likely prefer a softer mattress, whereas if you’re over 80kg we would recommend something firmer.

Although a mattress is not a magic solution, if you do have some pain, the right firmness is important. A soft mattress can take pressure off your shoulders, a firm mattress can increase support on your back, whereas hip pain could either mean your hips are sinking in too far or not enough – and therefore you’ll likely need a mattress somewhere in the middle.

About Our Natural Bamboo Covers

Why do you offer 2 covers for this size?

We are always looking for ways to improve our environmental impact, which is why we switched to our new Organic Cotton Covers as soon as we could – but it meant we have some very good quality stock leftover. Rather than put it to waste, we decided to offer it at a small discount to those who want it.

How is the ‘Bamboo’ cover different?

The main difference is our Cotton covers are made of 100% Certified Organic material, although our Bamboo covers were still sustainably sourced and 100% Natural. Both covers feel the same on the latex (acting as a minimal comfort layer to protect and hold the latex in place), both have zips on 3 sides and both are cold-machine washable. However, the Bamboo cover is more stretchy, so it can actually be a little easier to put the mattress together. And you can always switch to a Cotton cover later if you wish, which we would do for half-price (Queen $240 $120 or King $290 $145). Thanks for your support!
