Bankwest ATMs

We’re making some changes and improvements to our ATMs over the coming months. You’ll still be able to do all the usual stuff that makes your day to day banking more convenient – like withdraw cash, check your balance and more – but here’s what else you can expect to see at our ATMs.

ATM audio – plug in to get started

The audio starts as soon as you plug in your earphones, and step by step instructions will guide you through your transaction. You can use any standard earphones with a 3.5mm audio connector.

Here's what to expect before you insert your card at the ATM:

  1. The funnel-shaped audio jack is located above and to the right of the ATM keypad. Place your earphones in your ears first, then plug your earphones in firmly as the audio will start immediately.
  2. You’ll be prompted to adjust the volume and hear the introduction. Use the keypad to respond. You can set the volume using the flat, disc-shaped toggle button above the audio jack at any time.
  3. You can insert your card after this step.


To skip the introduction simply plug in your earphones, adjust the volume if you want, then press number 2 twice (this answers 'No' to the initial questions). Insert your card and enter your PIN when prompted.
