Looking for a banking experience that’s tailored to you? At The Capricornian, we’ve crafted a seamless process to make switching financial institutions hassle-free and personalised.

1. We Keep You In Mind

At The Capricornian, we start your journey with a genuine conversation about your goals and banking preferences. Whether you’re saving for a dream holiday, buying your first home or planning for a family, our team is here to create a personalised approach just for you.

Our credit union has been part of the Central Queensland community for over 60 years – with a focus on giving back to the local community through our sponsorships, grants and staff volunteer programs – so you also get to be part of something meaningful.

2. Comprehensive Financial Support

Our service covers everything from selecting a bank account that suits your needs to connecting you with our local lending experts. We can also provide financial health checks, budgeting calculators and term deposits to bring you closer to achieving your financial dreams.

Additionally, through our partnership with CGU Insurance, we offer insurance coverage to ensure you’re well-protected. When you contact The Capricornian, you’re speaking to someone right here in the Capricorn region.

3. Simple Membership Process

To join The Capricornian, it’s as easy as a chat. We’ll guide you through the process to become a member which requires some paperwork and purchasing $10 in shares – a small investment that goes a long way.

In most cases, you will just need to bring a driver’s licence and/or photo ID with your current address for identification purposes. Whether it’s a personal account or a business account, we’ve got you covered.

4. No-Fuss Account Set-Up

Worried about the nitty-gritty of setting up an account with another bank? Relax! We make your banking experience seamless with perks like VISA Debit Cards, Online Banking, The Cap App (for both Apple & Android devices), Google Pay, Apple Pay and more.

We can even assist with set up if required, including transferring recurring payments and direct debits – just provide us with the details.

5. Our Friendly Team Is Here To Help

What sets us apart? We’re not just a bank; we’re your financial partner with a friendly local team. The Capricornian is here to make the transition smooth and stress-free, providing you with a face-to-face or over-the-phone experience that feels like home.
