Hi Elksa,
Do a search on here as we were talking about beds a while back. I think I even started a thread on waterbeds, lol and there have been a few discussions about bedding.

Hi

We bought a king size bed when we first arrived here. They are huge!!! much bigger than the UK king size, and i love mine so much i'll never buy a smaller one again. The best thing about htem is in summer when it gets really hot theres plenty of room to spread out without touching the person next to you (no touching sweaty bods in the night ) But if you do buy one i dont think UK bedding will be big enough.

For bedding purposes UK King Size roughly equates to Aus Queen size, sheets, duvet covers etc would be fine. However there are a few cms difference which we found to our cost. We brought a king size bed but ditched the old matress. When it came to buying a new matress here they were slightly longer, bit of a problem with a pine bed with head and foot boards. Hubby ended up having to make new side rails etc to make it fit, so beware!

Queen size beds seem more the norm than doubles. King size is huge as PP says, that's the next one we'll have!
