City of Rockingham Mayor Barry Sammels officially opened the branch after reflecting on the opening of the Rockingham bank 12 years ago.

“On a personal level and through the City we’ve always had a great relationship with the Bendigo Bank and we have done for all of those 12 years,” he said.

“In the last 12 years, the Bendigo Bank has contributed over $1 million back into the community, which has been a fantastic effort by them and well received.

“I wish you all the best, I think it’s going to be a great facility.”

Secret Harbour branch manager Bindi Gane said she was very excited and proud to see the bank finally open after a year of planning and research.

“We are a community bank and we are here for the people,” she said.

“All of our staff are trying to get involved with as many community groups and events as we can.”
