Nightcliff Community Enterprises Ltd. (NCEL) operates Nightcliff Community Bank as a franchise of Bendigo Bank to provide Bendigo Bank banking products and services to the public.
As many local branches of the 'Big 4' closed, in 2008 NCEL was set up by around 300 local shareholders with the express purpose of ensuring local banking services continued to be available.
Since opening, the Nightcliff Community Bank has provided around $1 MILLION to local charities, clubs and other NGO's as our constitution stipulates, with up to 80% of the franchise profits returned to the community.
Manager Jeff Watson and the staff understand Darwin because they live here (even during the build up) and are keen to help with your banking needs.
