Over 70 people have taken advantage of free mobile hearing tests at the Wauchope Caravan and Camping Show on August 9-11.
Hearing Australia buses travel around the country, not only visiting busy city centres, but also smaller regional towns where it might be difficult for people to get their hearing checked.
Port Macquarie Hearing Community Advisor Lucinda Blanch said 25 out of the 70 people tested at the Wauchope Caravan and Camping Show had hearing outside the normal range.
The bus is outside Port Macquarie-Hastings Library on August 12 and will be at Laurieton's Men's Shed on August 13 and Kmart Port Macquarie on August 14.
Mrs Blanch said the bus is all about education.
"We look at different places to take the bus to encourage people to jump on board and take five to 10 minutes to test hearing levels," she said.
"It is about encouraging people to know where there levels are at and when to take action," she said.
Mrs Blanch said it takes on average seven years for people to take action on hearing loss.
Usually it is the people around them who notice there is a problem.
"The TV is starting to go up louder and they are repeating themselves frequently and it starts putting pressure on those close relationships," Mrs Blanch said.
"Other general signs are they need people to repeat what they said, missing beginning and end of sentences, people sound like they are mumbling."
Not everyone who is experiencing problems hearing may need a hearing aid.
"Sometimes people might just need support listening to the TV at normal volumes, hearing at noisy social events, or hearing their friends and family on the phone," Mrs Blanch said.
Mrs Blanch said Australians are more susceptible to hearing loss than previously.
"Look at the amount of people who are walking around with headphones?" she said.
"We play music too loud or at an unsafe level, only a certain amount of time that you can listen to certain things at a high volume before it starts causing problems to hearing."
The Hearing Bus will be at Laurieton Men's Shed on Tuesday August 13 9-12pm and Kmart Port Macquarie on Wednesday August 14 9-12pm.
