The ADI Points of Presence publication is a detailed annual listing of the banking services provided to Australians by authorised deposit-taking institutions (ADIs). The data covers many types of service channels including face-to-face and electronic banking facilities. The individual points of banking presence are categorised using the Accessibility and Remoteness Index of Australia (ARIA) which classifies the locations according to accessibility or remoteness.
There are three files for this year’s publication:
The first file is a PDF summary of ADI Points of Presence within Australia. This file provides a summary of changes and trends. The document also includes branch numbers for each Australian ADI.
The second file is an Excel version of the PDF summary of ADI Points of Presence within Australia, with a longer time series in the trend tables (tables 2, 2a and 2b).
The third file is an Excel file containing the data in raw format and Bank@Post information. Two interactive summary tables are also provided. One table summarises by state those individual bank, building society and credit union ‘points of presence’ offering a branch level of service. The second table summarises all service channels available. Data in this file have been augmented with the Accessibility and Remoteness Index of Australia (ARIA).

This will be the last edition of the ADI Points of Presence publication in its current format. The first edition of the streamlined PoP statistics for the reporting period ending 30 June 2017 will be published in April 2018. This has been delayed to enable the inclusion of banking services offered via Australia Post and to incorporate latitude and longitude information.
On September 23 2015, APRA released a discussion paper seeking feedback on two proposed options for the future of the PoP statistics and data collection:
- streamline the PoP statistics and data collection; or
- cease the PoP statistics and data collection.
The discussion paper is available here.
On 30 June 2016, APRA released a Response to Submissions available here.
