We acknowledge the traditional owners of this land, the Dja Dja Wurrung people, and we pay our respect to the elders past, present and emerging. The Dja Dja Wurrung people have been custodians of this land for many centuries, and have performed age old ceremonies of celebration, ritual and renewal. We acknowledge their living culture and their unique role in the life of this region. We express our gratitude that we share this land together, our sorrow for some of the cost of that sharing, and our hope and belief that we can move to a place of equity, justice and partnership together.

How we support the community
"The Maldon & District Community Bank continues to be a wonderful institution that serves the community with professionalism, loyalty and generosity. We all have good reason to be proud of it."
“The Dunolly Gilbert & Sullivan Festival is going from strength to strength. We will always remember with gratitude the support we were given for the inaugural Festival. We were funded by a grant from the Maldon & District Community Bank. We are now self funding and able to present quality shows to the community, performed by members of the community in a self-sufficient manner. We would not have been able to do that without the support and faith you showed in us at the start. We will always be grateful for your help and everything the Community Bank does for the local community.”
Dunolly’s Gilbert & Sullivan Festival
"As a small business, we’ve been really happy with the service at the Newstead & Maldon Community Bank branches. We changed from a Big 4 bank and the biggest difference is the service. With the local branch your issue is handled by an individual, not a call centre. The same person follows up and sees that your application or query is resolved. With our old bank you’d have to start again every time you called and it was really frustrating. I also really like the Business Easy Saver account as it lets you earn interest and make transactions in one account. This avoids the hassle of having to move money around between accounts."
