All branches will be operating from 10:00am to 3:00pm, Monday to Friday until further notice. You can still get in touch with us by phone on 132 888 from 8:00am to 8:00pm, Monday to Friday and 9:00am to 2:00pm Saturday. It may take us longer to answer your call as more customers choose to call rather than come into a branch so thanks in advance for your patience and please take care of yourselves. View details

The fine print

General advice warning: In providing you with this information you should consider the appropriateness of this advice with regards to your particular financial situation and needs. You should consult the Product Disclosure Documents before making a decision to apply for products with Bank Australia.

Terms, conditions, fees and charges may be applicable. 

Any request for withdrawal of funds from the term deposit prior to its maturity will be subject to 31 days’ notice. If regular access to funds is required, another account may be more suitable.

For Term Deposits with terms less than 2 years where interest is paid at maturity, approval of any request for either a full or part redemption of funds prior to the expiry of the agreed term is at the discretion of Bank Australia.
