Sturdy, High Quality and Stylish
Extremely happy with our new bed from Quokka Beds! We ordered the jarrah floating bed base and are so impressed with the quality of the bed. Beautifully made and not a single creak as advertised! It's great to know we have a well-made, high-quality bed frame by a local business that we can keep forever. Love how it looks in our room and very easy to assemble!

The no creak base
Our floating Jarrah bed base is so nice. We love the fact that it does not creak. It is simple, minimalist and elegant. I recommend this to anyone who loves timber and who wants to avoid stubbing their toes on the legs.
Was looking for a bed base that could properly support a King mattress without the risk of any sagging. Quokka Beds fits the bill. Very strong support with 8 legs (4 on the outer edge and 4 through the centre of the bed) and 48 timber slats. Perfect for what we were after.

Very happy with our new bed base , mattress and pillows!
I have previously owned a base from quokka beds so knew they were high quality. My new bed has lived up to its predisessor- we love it. Sturdy and easy to put together, with a simple design that would suit any room. We also got a mattress and pillow - both are very comfortable, we are very happy with our purchase. On top of the quality products, the team at quokka are excellent to deal with and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a new bed

Exactly what we were looking for
We have been searching for a simple bed base and couldn’t find what we wanted. Finally I stumbled across quokka after our last bed broke. It’s good quality, sturdy and soooo easy to put together and take apart. I did it by myself. It will be convenient to move with us since we are Renting and it’s compact so it’s great for our tiny bedroom. The base is also the same size as a mattress so it doesn’t stick out - no more bumping our shins or toes!

Easy assembly and looks great
Assembly was super easy. Even alone it took only a few minutes. Looks great. Love that it's Aussie made from local, sustainable timber. Had an issue with the headboard wobbling and creaking, but now much improved thanks to fast and helpful customer service. Would give 5 stars, if not for this issue.

Fantastic customer service and product
I love the bed base but I chose the wrong colour. They immediately helped me sort it out, not a problem at all. I was really impressed considering they are made to order. I really appreciated it as I thought I was going to be stuck with it. Now I have exactly what I wanted and it is excellent quality.

Exactly what we were seeking
We have been very happy with our experience with Quokka.
We had great communication with the Quokka Team. We had parts missing which were delayed in transit as is common in the current times. We were a little concerned that a package might have lost its way from WA to Melbourne, but the Quokka team responded immediately on the weekend with reassurance that a third package was definitely on the way.
We chose Quokka because we wanted a floating solid timber base that is structurally sound and at an affordable price. Our Quokka floating base ticks...

Beautiful wood, beautiful piece of furniture!
Our new Quokka Beds jarrah floating bed base is beautiful, was easy to put together and indeed does not squeak. Looks great in the Jarrah timber and excellent quality build with a lovely finish. Great price and service, would recommend.

The base exceeds my expectation.
It only took around 10 minutes to put together, which was an absolute delight.
I've had very comfortable sleeps since the arrival of the bed base & the appearance is so understated & smart looking.

Beautiful, high quality, all Aussie product.
Delighted with the Quokka bed base in tassie oak. Discovered this product whilst searching for an alternative to the sleeping-duck-koala-made-in-china-type-options. Delighted to discover and support an all Australian product. Even happier now that I have the bed base. It’s nicely built, sturdy, elegant, and I put it together in 5 mins (maybe 8 if you count opening the boxes). Can confirm it does not squeak. 100% would recommend and would repurchase.

Lives up to the reviews
With covid, shipping delays, and supply issues it did take a few months to receive the bed, but it was definitely worth it. No buyers remorse here, the bed is as advertised - squeak free. I got the floating frame, which looks fantastic. I also appreciate that I won't be kicking my toes on the frame legs in the morning. Still waiting on an the side tables to arrive, I'll update once I receive
This bed answered all my bed problems
The order was placed in December and arrived wihtin the stated delivery time - in fact it arrived earlier than the maximum time started. It arrived in two very thick cardboard boxes in perfect condition.
Then asembly was easy and quick. The jarrah sides and base and headboard were sturdy & well-finished.
The brackets fitted easily as did the slats.
The bird is very sturdy with no squeaks.
I highly recommend the product and the service.

Questions & Answers
Hello everyone! I have a brand new Sleeping Duck QS mattress and would really love to put it on a Quokka base. Has anyone done this? I’m wary that SD 10-year warranty stipulates 2 middle-support feet as well as outside 4. Would this even be an issue? The Quokka base is the best-looking one I’ve seen, not to mention it ticks the other boxes of being Australian made and quality-driven. Would love to hear what you think.
Hi there! In fact, Sleeping Duck have confirmed with us directly that our bed base is supportive enough to withhold their warranty! Here is what they said (feel free to confirm with them too):
"I've ...passed this information to our engineering team and they have confirmed the structure sounds quite solid. In this case, two supporting beams are not mandatory to validate warranty as this construction and material take great force to bend. As you will be using solid timber slats that are wide enough and spaced out narrowly, as well as having a central rail and grounded support, this should have enough stability for our mattress.
That’s fantastic to hear (and a relief). Thanks Quokka Team. I’ll be in touch to discuss ordering.
We'd like to clarify that since early 2021 for all our KING and SUPER KING bases, we now use 2 supporting beams (centrebeams) with 4 grounded legs (2 on each beam). Our slats are also 3.5cm ...apart (far less than the 8cm required). This provides a firm and aerated support for the Sleeping Duck mattress, exceeding it's warranty guidelines, or any other mattress warranty we have come across too. Please get in touch for any further questions or clarifications.
What are the quokka mattresses like in comparison to a memory foam mattress ?
Our Latex Mattress is made of consistent, 100% Natural Latex. It is significantly different from Memory Foam, as they are both different materials. Although both considered to be highly dur...able mattress materials, Latex has a natural lifespan used as a mattress for up to 20 years, whereas Memory Foam lasts about 10 years. Latex is also more eco-friendly due to its manufacturing processes as it comes from the sap of a rubber tree, and Memory Foam generally uses more synthetic materials.
