Following a review by the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA), from 3 March 2009 ATM Direct Charging will be introduced at all ATMs across Australia.
ATM Direct Charging will now mean the fee charged for using an ATM will be displayed and charged by the ATM owner at the time of completing a transaction at their ATM. This ATM Direct Charge will then be displayed as a separate item on your account statement.
As from the 23rd September 2017 Commonwealth Bank removed ATM withdrawal fees.
Westpac, NAB and ANZ dropped their ATM withdrawal fees in October 2017.

ING will also rebate international ATM fees if you meet the above criteria.
