In celebration of World Hearing Day, Hearing Australia’s ‘’ is now underway with more than 1,000 events being held in towns and cities across the country during the month of March, giving Australians aged 18 and over the opportunity to receive a free*, simple 15-minute hearing check.
Hearing Australia buses are on the road, with events also being held in pharmacies, shopping centres, care homes, libraries, the local sports club, GPs and community centres, with Hearing Australia’s team bringing expert hearing care directly to people in their communities.
Hearing Australia Managing Director Kim Terrell says, “We know that people can experience barriers to accessing health services and we want to make it as easy as possible for people to see a hearing professional by offering hearing checks in every corner of the country.
“Our centres are always available for people to book in, but this March we are really encouraging people to register and head down to the nearest ‘Hearing the Nation’ event to get their free*, 15-minute hearing check.”
During 2021-22 Hearing Australia supported more than 270,000 children and adults with hearing loss. Each week, they continue to help thousands of children, adults, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, pensioners and veterans across the country connect with their families, friends and communities.

* Only 15-minute hearing checks are free. Conditions apply under the Australian Government Hearing Services Program (‘HSP’).
