The big summer switch

Experience a braver kind of banking

Three reasons to make the switch

Joining a local and customer-owned bank like Summerland has never been easier, nor more important. Because in a world that seems to be increasingly focused on helping yourself, we will never stop helping others, and supporting our local community.

Banking the way it should be

With branches throughout the Northern Rivers NSW and South East Queensland, we offer good old-fashioned customer service with all the bells and whistles of a modern bank.

Quick and easy to get started

Whether it’s your first-ever account or you’re looking for a fresh start away from the ‘bigger guys’, we can get you up and running in minutes – onlinecontact us, or in a local branch.

Better for you and the planet

Going beyond traditional definitions of sustainability, we prioritise growth that is ethical, responsible and doesn’t cost the earth, while delivering value for our customers.

Easy steps to make the switch.

Here’s how you can make the switch once you’ve opened a new Summerland account.

Become a new customer

Open a new transaction account online in just under five minutes, or pop into a branch near you. All you need is two ID’s, either an Australian drivers licence, Australian passport or a Medicare card to get started.

Update regular payments

Update regular debit or credit payments into your new account. We can help with this by completing the Switch pack form and sending it back to us and we’ll take care of this for you. 

Close your old accounts

Once everything has switched over, it’s time to close your accounts. We can organise this for you, or you might prefer to do this yourself.

Enjoy free monthly fee

Take advantage of the monthly fee waiver by switching your pay over to Summerland or credit $2,000 a month into your account.
