At Bendigo Bank, we’re quite similar to the Geelong and Bellarine tourism region: a unique offering, great value for money, and lots of returning clientele.

In an industry of over-sized banking giants, we provide a genuine alternative. Combining an extensive product range to rival any bank in the country with our industry renowned brand of customer service, we deliver banking the Bendigo way.

People keep coming back – just as they do to the Geelong and Bellarine region – so we know that our customers believe we’re doing plenty of things right.

But that doesn’t mean we rest on our laurels. Like any organisation worth their salt, we’re always looking at how we can continually get better, particularly in the ways we can improve our customer’s experience.

We’re also regularly examining how we can continue to grow our community relationships. Because as well as providing quality banking products and exceptional service, we have a long-standing and passionate commitment to supporting local communities all over Australia.

The Bendigo Bank name is synonymous with community and we are proud of our track record in backing local communities. We have contributed more than $165 million back into communities around the country, with $6 million going directly into Geelong and the surrounding region.

With over 500 Bendigo Bank branches across Australia, many of which are Community Bank® branches (including in the Geelong and Bellarine region), community support and engagement is a key foundation of our organisation.

We look forward to continuing to support local communities and our customers throughout the Geelong and Bellarine region well into the future.
