Bankwest was founded in 1895 by the state government to provide for farmers, under the name Agricultural Bank of Western Australia. Back then, WA was a wide and relatively empty expanse, so Bankwest staff would hit the road and travel for miles between farms, sleeping on the side of the road. In 2008, Bankwest joined the Commonwealth Bank Group.

Bankwest was responsible for a number of banking “firsts” in Australia – they launched blue light signature verification units, drive-through bank branches, WA’s first after-hours cash dispenser (the pre-cursor to the ATM), and Australia’s first bank to fully implement electronic data processing. They were also the first bank in WA to give women jobs as bank tellers.
