Community Bank

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, $272 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.

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 324 Community Bank branches throughout 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.
