The End of ATMs in Australia? Thousands of Cash Machines Are Removed Across the Country As Banks Go Digital

By Andrew Prentice

– ATM’s and bank branches across Australia are continuing to close at a rapid rate
– Switch by customers to digital banking seen ‘Big Four’ banks switch their focus
– ANZ head of distribution Kath Bray said changes were a clear sign of the times

As Australian banks continue to focus on digital transactions for customers, ATMs and bank branches are disappearing across the country, according to new data.

The analysis revealed close to 460 bank branches have shut down across the nation in recent years, and dating back to 2020, approximately 3800 previously active ATMs have been removed.

NSW alone now has 140 fewer in-store banks, and almost 300 suburbs don’t have a singular ATM to withdraw cash.

It is a similar story in Victoria, where 120 branches have permanently closed their doors to customers.

‘Closures have a devastating impact on local communities,’ Finance Sector Union national secretary Julia Angrisano said.

‘Jobs are lost, business is impacted, and another local service disappears.’

The closures have hit hard in regional and rural areas, and for older citizens, Ms Angrisano added.

Another key factor for the branch closures and reduced ATM’s is the fact that banks are bringing in a small fortune from daily digital transactions.

As Australia accelerates towards a cashless society, fees from either the customer or vender for online banking have become common place.

In a modern-day digital world, an estimated 80 percent of Aussies prefer to bank online.

But the remaining 20 per cent, namely the disabled or those who are not digital savvy, have been left stranded.

Tellingly, CBA now has 875 bank branches nationwide – compared to 1134 in February 2020.

Their number of ATMs has reduced to just over 2000 – in 2019 there were 4118 ATM’s in circulation.

Last year, ANZ head of distribution Kath Bray said bank branch closures were a sign of the times, with digital transactions now the primary focus for many.
