We’re Great Southern Bank
Welcome to Australia’s largest customer-owned bank. Sounds impressive doesn’t it? Not the big part, but how we help so many people while being owned by those very same people. It sounds good, it feels good and it is good. For everyone. It’s a more transparent way of doing things and how all big banks should work.

We also have more freedom to focus on our priorities. At Great Southern Bank we’re thinking big, going for gold and aiming for nothing less than to help all Australians own their own homes. Yep, you heard right. Everyone. We understand the importance of home ownership and noticed people are finding it harder than ever. So, we’re doing something about it.

We also know that no two customers are the same, so we have created some pretty clever products that match the many ways they now live and work. Real world solutions for real financial security.

So welcome! We like saying this as it brings to mind our customers welcoming people into their own homes. Nothing gives us greater joy than to help that happen. It’s been that way for 75 years (happy diamond anniversary to us), and we’re hugely excited about the next.

We've won several prestigious awards.

Our story
Our story began back in 1946 when we saw an opportunity to give Australians a fairer deal. We challenged the banking status quo at the time by providing responsible and affordable lending. Through a series of mergers with like-minded credit unions and community groups, we created the powerful force that is Great Southern Bank today. This growth and success lets us reinvest in our business, deepen our relationships with our customers, champion great causes, and build stronger communities. We’ve changed a lot over the years - and today we offer much more than just lending - but we’re still driven by a passionate and genuine desire to enrich our customers’ lives.

That's the Great Southern Bank difference. Isn’t it time you discovered it for yourself?
