bcu was established in 1970 by a group of banana growers in the Macksville district, as the Nambucca Banana Growers’ Federation Members Credit Union, to create an alternative to big banks in the region. The name they have today, bcu, stands for their heritage as the banana growers’ credit union.

In their first year, bcu had accumulated just $6,809 in assets under management, and today they manage over $1 billion. bcu has also expanded its physical presence, with branches and ATMs from Port Macquarie to south-east Queensland.

Thanks to its regional roots, bcu remains committed to providing jobs, economic diversity, and growth throughout their local region. Remote members of bcu who find they have to use other institutions’ ATMs are eligible for a number of free ATM transactions with their partner ATM network.

Certain bcu home loans received a 5-star rating from Canstar in our March 2017 star ratings; see our home loans comparison pages for details.
