I forgot to mention, I had to change my bedding 3 times as I kept getting the wrong size. Most beds here are King and Queen. In the UK Queen is bigger but in Oz King is bigger.
For bed sizes check this table because a King in the UK is a queen here:
scroll down, check the table
you won't have room to vacum pack........ but they wouldn't explode, how can they?
As posted Big W, K mart, Target would be your first port of call...... yes you use a sheet in summer, but for 6 months you use a duvet, for the other 4 months you use 2 duvets, pj's socks, and what ever else will keep you warm.
You think we are joking? LOL you won't
Temps down to 4 at night this weekend, that means 4 inside too!! BRRRRRR
You will find those shops in most if not all shopping centres, west lakes TTP elizabeth, marion ETC and places in between.
If you do decide to buy when you get here the wool filled duvets are much warmer I have found, and you don't have as many problems with allergies with them, the fillingis usually more evenly distributed also. If you have the time to go onto the internet this is a fantastic time of year to pick up a bargain, Harris Scarfe usually have some very good products and some fantastic prices, and in the past have matched prices, the quality of their products are usually very good. Spotlight also had a huge selection when I went in there the other day at good prices, I have to replace these for our B&Bs often so I am always searching for a good product at a good price.
Just been reading all of your interesting replies.
Does this mean houses in Adelaide arn't insulated and double glazed to be soo cold?
Look forward to hearing your responses.

At least we have a good summer to look forward to!
