Australian Hearing will offer free hearing tests on Friday, May 26 at the monthly store cattle sale at the South West Victorian Livestock Exchange on Caramut Road.
As well as having a hearing check, visitors to Hearing Australia’s pop-up kiosk at the saleyards can find out about the latest hearing technology and test out a range of devices designed to make everyday hearing easier.
Australian Hearing Warrnambool manager Chelsea Scott said hearing loss was a prevalent issue in the community, with about 60 per cent of Australians over 60 suffering from some form of hearing loss.
The service will be provided between 9:30am and 2:30pm on May 26.
No appointment is necessary.
Australian Hearing provides subsidised hearing care for eligible people, including pensioners and most veterans.
