About The Little Hearing Co.

Hearing care in Australia is dominated by the big, foreign-owned clinic chains. So we decided to be a Little different.

The Little Hearing Co. is your locally-owned full service audiology provider.

A hearing clinic, but a Little different.

The Little Hearing Co. is proud to be 100% locally owned and operated.

With a combined 40 years experience working in the hearing care industry, we had seen many small providers being bought up by BIG hearing aid chains. We believe that there is more to audiology than just selling hearing aids. Hearing matters from the time we are learning to speak, through our education, our work-life and into retirement.

That's when we decided to create a comprehensive family-owned hearing service, for your whole family.

Here's a few of our Little differences.

  1. Trusted, comprehensive and experienced. We've both worked with young children for decades and have assessed 10,000s of kids in that time. We are known and trusted by many GP and ENTs around Brisbane to provide accurate and comprehensive services.
  2. All of your hearing options. We have extensive expertise working with hearing aids, cochlear implants, and other implantable hearing solutions so when hearing aids are no longer suitable, we can easily transition you across to the next step in your hearing journey.
  3. All of the major manufacturers. We have deliberately chosen to offer all of the major hearing aid and hearing implant manufacturers available in Australia. This means we can find the right technology to meet your unique needs.


Are you ready for a Little help with your hearing?


We look forward to welcoming you to one of our two locations:

80 Florence Street, Wynnum QLD 4178

65 Gilston Street, Keperra QLD 4054 (opening June 2024)
