“Following a recent review of customer transaction activity at Bendigo Bank’s Kuranda branch and the bank’s branch footprint in the Cairns region, the bank has made the decision to consolidate two neighbouring branches in Kuranda and Smithfield,” the statement said.
“This decision takes into consideration the proximity of our branches in Smithfield and Mareeba.
