About us

The origins of our bank began more than 150 years ago in two great Australian communities, Bendigo in Victoria and Adelaide in South Australia. Bendigo Bank and Adelaide Bank each started out as building societies, driven to help Australians buy their own home.

Bendigo and Adelaide Bank is now a top 60 ASX listed company, owned by more than 90,000 shareholders. We have more than 6,500 employees, who serve about 1.5 million customers in over 500 communities Australia-wide.
