Hearing Australia

Hearing Australia has been caring for Australians for over 75 years, helping thousands of children, adults, pensioners and veterans connect with their loved ones. No matter your age, or hearing need — they are here to help you rediscover the sounds you love.

Vision and mission

Hearing Australia's mission is to provide world leading research and hearing services for the wellbeing of all Australians.

They’ll work with you to deliver on our promise to make hearing easy — to make a difference to you, your family as well as the communities they serve.

How Hearing Australia can help

Easy to access hearing services

Hearing Australia has over 180 permanent locations and hundreds of visiting sites across Australia. They also provide online and telehealth services.

Experienced and certified clinicians

Every Hearing Australia clinician is clinically certified and accredited by a professional body.

Comprehensive assessments

They take time to understand your hearing needs and conduct a comprehensive hearing assessment. Based on your needs and results, they will help you find a hearing solution that works for you.

They care for all Australians

They’re also the country’s largest provider of government-funded hearing services for children, young adults under 26, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, pensioners, and veterans.

A solution fit to your needs

Whatever the solution, they will guide you on your path to better hearing. If you’re recommended a hearing device, they will help you find the right one and tailor the solution to suit your lifestyle. They also have a range of listening devices for specific activities. If you don’t love your hearing aids, you can return them within 55 days under our money back guarantee.
