See the change your banking can make
Switch and be the change
You may not think who you bank with matters. But it does. For our customers, their banking is making a real difference.
Every day our customers help change lives, and save lives, simply by banking with us. Their home loans are building skate and sports parks, hospital wings and classrooms. Personal loans, business banking and credit cards are funding ambulances, rescue boats, disabled and aged care facilities.
Everyday banking is providing all this and more. In fact, $320 million has been returned to communities and initiatives Australia-wide.
You need a bank to give you the products and services you need. We need your banking to help us make a difference.
How you going?
I'm good. How are you? So I'll just get your account up. It looks like you've built up a lot of change from banking with us. Would you like to see the change?
Yeah? Cool. I'll just pop out. I won't be a minute. Is that okay?
Yeah. Yeah. Yeah.
Great. Hi. Can I just grab you out here for a sec?

No matter where you are around Australia, see the change your banking can make. Bendigo Bank: Be the change.
Are you one of us?
In the late 1990’s a new type of banking model came onto Australia’s banking scene. Bendigo’s Community Bank branches.
It was a brave and bold move by a regional bank in a rapidly evolving banking and finance sector. Today, more than 20 years later, there are more than 300 Community Bank branches around Australia, partnering with one of Australia's biggest banks.
Not only do these Community Bank branches provide banking and financial services, they have a unique point of difference.
