No more banking at town’s post office

It will be even more difficult for ANZ customers to access banking services in Daylesford, with ANZ personal banking deposit and withdrawal services no longer available through Australia Post.

The Bank@Post service was stopped on January 15 and will have a flow on effect for customers across regional Australia. 

It comes after ANZ closed its Daylesford branch in August last year, as well as at more than 60 other locations across the country.

All accounts were transferred to Kyneton, with customers able to make withdrawals, payments and deposits at the post office. An ATM remains in the town.

At the time of the closure, ANZ general manager for Victoria and Tasmania, Bridget Harper, said only 21 per cent of ANZ customers used the face-to-face services at Daylesford branch.

ANZ did not respond to The Advocate’s request for comment.
