Some of the bad things about getting older? Your back hurts more and it’s harder to get a good night’s sleep. One of the good things? You’ve finally got the money to spend on a decent mattress.

Yes, the days when any old futon mattress on the floor was OK to sleep on are long gone. Fortunately, it’s now possible to buy a good mattress without breaking the bank, especially when Koala has a sale on.

If you haven’t heard of Koala, it’s the Australian company that’s getting rave reviews for its mattresses thanks to the Kloudcell technology Koala engineered. Kloudcell is an open-cell foam that creates a comfort layer on Koala mattresses. The company describes it has having the lush, soft feel of memory foam and latex but with the breathability and bounce that’s hard to get from mattresses made from those materials.

The open-cell foam also provides airflow through the mattress that allows heat to escape, minimising sweaty summer nights – unless, of course, that’s what you want your mattress for! Koala also reckons it’s got the combination of support and ‘sinkability’ just right, so most customers find their beds to be not too firm, nor too soft.

There are a few other unusual advantages to Koala’s mattresses. They come with a removable, easy-wash cover and are delivered in a roll so you just open it up and place the mattress on your bed – no lugging a heavy mattress around to position it on your bed base.

Plus, Koala doesn’t charge for delivery and can deliver your new mattress at your home in as little as four hours after you order if you live in an Aussie metro area.

A double Koala mattress is down to $807.50, from $950, in the sale, while, for example, a king-sized mattress will set you back $1,062.50, down from $1,250. Even at full price, Koala’s prices are considerably lower than many of the big mattress brands.

But Koala is so confident you’ll love your mattress that it offers a 120-day, risk-free return policy so if you’re not 100 per cent happy with your purchase, the company will pick it up from your home and give you a full refund.

Sound good? It gets better. Koala’s end-of-financial-year sale is on, which means there’s a 15 per cent discount on its famous mattresses, as well as on its Koala Bed Base (which won a 2018 Good Design Award – check out the pic of the timber bed base below, which starts at $680 after discount), its cool-gel, memory-foam pillows and its silky sheets.

All of Koala’s products have the same 120-day, risk-free trial, so it might be convenient to consider some of its non-bedroom products at the same time, especially when Koala’s offering 25 per cent off its two-seater sofa (now $674.99, from $900), bookshelves (starting from $374.99 after discount) and TV unit (now $449.99, from $600).

There’s also 15 per cent off its three-seater sofa (down from $1,200 to $1,020) and sofa bed, which is a Koala mattress plus sofa in one (now $1,275, down from $1,500). You can see the three-seater sofa in the photo below.

Sometimes things sound too good to be true but Koala really is an award-winning Aussie company that’s making products customers love. That’s how it won awards from in 2016, 2017 and 2018 and has an average of 4.5 out of 5 stars from more than 3,000 reviews on the site. It also gets 5/5 on Google reviews.

“My back problem was eased from night one and I now have no pain at all and I’m sleeping so much better now,” one happy Koala customer wrote of her new mattress on Another commented: “It’s the most comfortable mattress I’ve ever slept on and my body is not stiff at all in the mornings. I also am sleeping a lot better.”

If these discounts, plus the great feedback from customers, isn’t enough to convince you, there’s one other lovely extra Koala offers. For every mattress purchased, the company adopts a koala or turtle through the World Wildlife Fund, so donating part of its profit toward the cost of restoring the habitat of two endangered creatures.

A great night’s sleep at a reasonable price, super-speedy delivery and a risk-free guarantee – plus a chance to help two of the world’s wonderful creatures – what more could you want? You can click here to check out Koala’s sale, which only lasts until June 30 – so don’t delay!
