Expert review

The high interest rates are not limited by deposit or withdrawal conditions, so you can enjoy easy access to your funds and a competitive rate every month.

Key features

You can avoid the monthly access fee by keeping your account balance above the required limit, or by making no withdrawals in the month.

There are no ATM withdrawal fees if you use a Regional Australia Bank ATM or an ATM within the Westpac network within Australia. Be aware that overseas ATM withdrawal fees apply, as well as international transactions fees for EFTPOS purchases.

How to apply

You need to become a member of Regional Australia Bank in order to open an account. Do this by phoning the bank or visiting one of its branches. Alternatively, you can fill in an enquiry form on Regional Australia Bank's website and a member of their team will get in touch to help you open an account.
