CICADA Queensland Gold Coast Branch

Regular monthly meet ups are held on the Gold Coast, for a cuppa and friendly chat. Our gatherings are held at the Able Southport Meeting room and office. The Able Gold Coast office is at 13 Sykes Court, Southport. The building is on the corner of Smith Street and High Street.

The main building has a hearing loop. We are fortunate to have the services of Able Transport to approved recipients of the Department of Ageing for transport for outings or for personal appointments to medical and other appointments. We can arrange accreditation with the Department of Ageing for these services and once approved, services such as home assistance and other services are available to recipients.

If you already have a Cochlear Implant or are just contemplating getting one, we are happy to meet with you personally for a chat and provide knowledge on how your life can be enhanced through knowledge of a variety of assistive listening devices available.

Membership to CICADA Queensland is encouraged at $20.00 per year. This membership fee includes a quarterly subscription to our CICADA CHORUS magazine.
