Exactly what we wanted
Quokka beds ticked all the boxes: Australian-make, high quality, elegantly simple, use of sustainably sourced timber. Service was excellent, delivery convenient and the beds simple to assemble and lovely to sleep on.

I am so delighted with this bed base I don't know where to start!
I'd been looking for 6 months for a bed that was affordable but good quality, and was not bigger than it needed to be for a smallish room. The design of this bed makes the overall dimensions bare minimum which was perfect. Almost everything else I'd looked at was of dubious quality or much more expensive. I only found one comparable bed but it was 10cm longer and wider so that sealed the deal for me. The Tassie oak I chose looks fantastic and is vastly superior to pine or a veneered finish. I timed myself putting it together (by myself) and it ...took me 26 minutes including unpacking from the boxes. Usually I'll refer to instructions but the way the bed went together was so obvious there was no need. I prefer to buy things online or at least research them online, and unlike most others the Quokka website told me every single thing I wanted to know so I was very confident with this purchase. The bed was shipped from Perth to Melbourne and arrived sooner than expected. Highly recommended.

Perfect, it's exactly what I was after. A solid good looking bed frame
Easily assembled even for a novice like me. The bed frame is solid , made with quality parts and looks like it will last for years. The design is simple and timeless.

We've used latex beds for 30 years. Our new Quokka bed is the best we've had in terms of build quality, value and quality of sleep. The folks at Quokka offered excellent, friendly service. We're very happy with our choice.
Beautiful, simple high quality bed
I got the jarrah floating bed with frame that fits flush with the mattress + headboard; a beautiful yet simple design that eliminates any incidence of stubbing toes or banging shins in the night. The meticulous craftsmanship has produced a high quality bed that is sturdy and doesn't creak. The bed was easily assembled with the help of my teen son.
Initially there was a minor issue with the bed but we received excellent service and the issue was quickly resolved. Locally made and no packaging delivery are also worth noting.
Very happy and satisfied with this bed.
Quick and super easy to put together.
You can do it yourself in under 10 minutes, from unboxing to putting everything together.
User friendly 10/10
It does start to squeak/creak after some use (I've had it for a couple months now) which can be a bit awkward at night but it's generally not an issue.
It's low enough to sit on comfortably but high enough to store things under.
Does not fit an average size adult underneath.
Overall 9.5/10...More than satisfied, no regrets with the purchase or the price.
Oak King Bed - Original Headboard
Beautiful yet simple design. Will never date! Very easy to assemble & not a creak to be heard. It compliments my organic latex mattress beautifully. Would highly recommend. So happy we could support local business too!
Love our Quokka bed base
This was super easy to assemble and only took a few minutes. Love that I could opt for no stain. We have now purchased another one in the new floating design.
Best Bed Base Ever !!!!
We are over the moon with our King size bed base. Initially there were some specifications that we weren't happy with ...namely the plywood type of wood on several of the pieces. The company took on our concerns , earnestly and immediately offered a solid wood replacement for those pieces and shipped them out pronto. I feel Quokka beds are a very genuine Australian company ...with excellent customer service but more importantly beautiful, environmentally savvy, strongly built and comfortable bed furniture. Without those nasty glue and chemical laquers..We recommend Quokka beds 110% !!!

Love the Base
The bed base is so well made, solid and sturdy. After sleeping on a creaky bed for years, it is wonderful to now be able to turn over in bed without making a sound.
Unfortunately no instructions were provided, so I had to resort to using the video, which I had to stop and start over and over again. The video is too fast, and does not give proper instructions for installing the floating base. Instead of 3 minutes, it took me well over 1/2 hour, with lots of confusion. I even contacted Quokka with photos, to ask whether the brackets at one end had been installed correctly by their production team.
Happy with my purchase and it’s so good to have a bed made for me from scratch by an Australian business.

Solid. Beautiful. Simple
Ordered two bed bases for my sons. Arrived in expected time frame. Construction is perfect, solid timber. Simple to put together even with two young children playing in the room. Very happy with my purchase and shall be back for my daughters beds when needed.

Great bed, quick delivery and great price.
Quokka were great, and good to deal with an Australian company. I purchased a queen bed base (no headboard) in Oak. It arrived quickly, and assembled easily with one person. It doesn't creak and has made no sound during the nights. My mattress is very slightly too large for the bed and the edge is flush or very slightly over the frame. If the bed base had a slight recess and was slightly bigger it would be perfect. Despite this, I'd definitely recommend the bed base and Quokka to friends and family.
Great looking bed!
Am overall happy with the purchase and love the simple, minimalist design. I purchased the floating bed base with headboard specifically for the look, advertised quality, and importantly because it is an Australian product. Was disappointed with the fact however that no assembly instructions were provided and as a result it definitely takes longer than the advertised 3 mins to put together. Had to access the video on the website which actually missed out some crucial steps. Given the hefty price tag this was unexpected and disappointing and is ...something I think could be easily and quickly rectified by the company. However once I figured which pieces went where, the assembly design (things just slot together) is very simple and easy. The product itself (once assembled) I'm very happy with.
Great Bed Base
The bed base was easy to put together and is just what I wanted. I have a very heavy mattress and it is very easy to change the sheets now that I have a bed with slats level with the top of the frame. Very good quality and no wobbles or squeaks.

Beautiful bed, excellent customer service!
I purchased the Queen sized bed in Oak with a Headboard in July 2020.
The bed is beautiful, sturdy and has that lovely wood smell.
My partner and I had no trouble putting the bed together.
The inner parts of the bed are unfinished, but we have not had any issues with that.
I was initially sent bed slats that were too big, and have had some trouble with the bed squeaking - but the Quokka support team have been outstanding! I was immediately sent new slats at no cost. Daniel explained why the bed was squeaking and offered to send me new bed pieces to fix the issue at no cost.

Assembled with partner without divorce!
Fairly easy assembly, beautiful bed, super happy with this lifetime purchase. It was definitely time to stop buying crappy cheap frames online and this one is just such a step up.

Wow! I love it. I love that it smells like wood. It's simple design make it incredibly sturdy and so easy to put together. I'm only 36 but I'm confident this bed will last the rest of my life. Best of all great value and made from sustainable wood.
I bought this bed to replace one purchased from a well known bed franchise which began to break within a month. 18 months later I am in the process of taking them to court because they refused to provide a refund - I've been sleeping on a mattress on the floor for 6 months.
After having such a bad...experience I am just so pleased with the bed I now have. As someone who values sustainability and buying products built to last it's great to know there are companies around that can deliver. I will be recommending Quokka beds to everyone I know.
