The ECO QLD/NT group is an area specifically for recent optometry graduates (up to 10 years experience) to connect and communicate in a supportive environment. 

Annually this group holds a number of educational seminars on clinical, practice or employment related content alongside social gatherings for networking with fellow young optometrists.

Do you have a tricky patient case or clinical question? Interested in networking with other colleagues? Join us on the closed group page on Facebook which members use to discuss many topics and receive information on upcoming events. This group is coordinated by Optometry Queensland & Northern Territory, as a member benefit for recent graduates.

For any further information contact the OQNT office on 07 3839 4411 or

If you are not already, we invite you to join the private Facebook group to stay up-to-date with the latest news, events, networking and advice at
