About us

We’re here for our farmers, their families and everyone who makes our rural communities grow and thrive.

Welcome to Rural Bank

The future for agriculture is bright and we aim to provide exceptional financial services, knowledge and leadership for Australian farmers to grow.

We're proud to support the Australian agribusiness community through local support and collaboration with industry organisations. We’re also proud of the fact that money deposited with us is reinvested into Australia in the form of loans to Australian primary producers.

We have a range of transaction, savings and investment accounts, including our Rural Bank ONE initiative that offers individuals and businesses the opportunity to invest in a range of deposit products with competitive interest rates.
