About Bendigo Bank
The origins of our Bendigo Bank began more than 150 years ago in two great Australian communities, Bendigo in Victoria and Adelaide in South Australia. Both banks started out as building societies, driven to help Australians buy their own home.
Bendigo Bank is now a top 60 ASX listed company, owned by more than 90,000 shareholders and has more than 6,500 employees, who serve about 1.5 million customers in more than 500 communities Australia-wide.
Bendigo Bank operates a number of brands which offer a diverse range of products and services that can satisfy all our customers’ needs and wants.
Elwood Community Bank Branch
Community Banking was initially aimed at regional and remote towns which had lost all of their banking services. But it was really no surprise when inquiries began to come from metropolitan suburbs which were also facing bank closures. Elwood was one such community.
With the ocean on one side of the suburb and a major highway on the other‚ Elwood is a community in the true sense of the word. A community left without any banking services. Although only seven kilometres from Melbourne’s central business district‚ Elwood residents and traders wanted a bank in their suburb. And so they turned to Bendigo Bank’s Community Banking model.
Elwood Community Bank® Branch opened its doors on 24 July‚ 1999‚ the first metropolitan site to open.
