Can't Access Westpac - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

Westpac.com.au is accessible for me from a Dodo ADSL connection, but totally inaccessible from a Westnet connection. Same DNS settings, so that's not the problem. Ran a tracert to see where it's hitting the wall, and the last hop before it starts timing out is:
9 101 ms 102 ms 100 ms bundle-ether12.ken-core4.sydney.telstra.net [203.50.11.12]
So it may well be a Telstra issue. Come on Westpac, figure it out.

Stewart Dean Smith · 1 August 2013 - 22:21
Australia · Telstra Internet

why does this site (www.isitdownrightnow.com) keep saying that WBC is up and running? The vast majority of tries will NOT get thru to even the opening page, and if you do succeed in logging in, it is likely that after looking at your accounts and trying to effect transactions, that the system will sooner or later "hang" or take you off to a page that says "This page can't be displayed". This is at least the 3rd day in a row for the Westpac site to be seriously troubled. How can they NOT have it fixed by now?

Nick Chance · 1 August 2013 - 22:04
Australia · TPG Internet Pty.

It looks like may be a network issue which means it is probably Telstra and not Westpac, would not surprise me if was related to NBN roll out reconfiguring and someone flicked a wrong switch. From my network connection via TPG (Optus I think underneath and Telstra) a network trace times out at Telstra router;

I tried the mobile app as an alternative, I could see balances but then it timed out. Telephone banking works fine, however. Handy hint: have the last 6 digits of your account numbers to hand before you dial in

Jonathan Moroze · 1 August 2013 - 21:21

I was able to use the westpac app to transfer money just then. Give that a try if you're desperate guys. Might work!

For everyone posting here, here is what westpac have said on there facebook page: Telephone Banking, ATMs, EFTPOS and branch-based services are all still fully operational.

I haven't been able to connect since last night 1st August and have kept trying today as I have bills to pay and funds to transfer. I trust that Westpac will waive any fees and charges for late payments due to their online banking services being unavailable.

AUD dollars going DOWN, Westpac is DOWN. Want to buy USD dollars before the AUD goes DOWN anymore bust Westpac is DOWN. So by the time their website works the AUD will be down even more and I will have lost money. Do you think Wetpac will compensate for that. F##king idiots and moros. Many other words possible.

vote with your feet. i called nab, took 5 mins to open a new everyday account and a high interest account. its 1 form to fill out to change where your salary gets paid into. this isnt the first time westpac banking has gone down. happened a few months ago and their atm cars couldn't even work! this is going to get worse before they get better. their customer service is rude as also. only thing these banks care about is money. take yours away from them its the only thing they will notice

Deb Cowan · 1 August 2013 - 19:00

Phone banking still working.. best option if you want to avoid late payment fees

Ollie Braganza · 1 August 2013 - 18:50

unbelievable & unacceptable! i've been trying to access my account (my money) most of the afternoon yesterday and this morning. they obviously haven't heard of a disaster recovery plan, or if they do they don't seem to be able to implement it!!

Tom Leverton · 1 August 2013 - 18:19
Australia · TPG Internet Pty

From the AustralianIT website: "The bank apologised to customers for the "interruption" and confirmed that Westpac customers would not incur any additional fees as a result of the problems"... oh well that's nice of them isnt it... but hang on, how about they compensate us for a change, because this outage is literally costing us money! They are the first to charge us if something unforeseen happens at our end!. Its clearly just a one way street.

Its about time this country's banking regulators (if they even exist) grew a pair and did more to stop institutions abusing the Australian public. Third party ATM fees... Monthly Account keeping fees... to name just two, almost completely unheard of in the UK, so how can Australian fat cats justify it? Please, someone, enlighten me.

Ps.This mess up aside, which genius at Westpac decided that scheduling frequent system maintenance outages during Australian business hours is good idea?

Heads had better roll.

Paul Bestwick · 1 August 2013 - 17:58

still down... billions of dollars profit and this is the level of service they provide ???

Mark Beard · 1 August 2013 - 17:54
Australia · Telstra Internet

They could at least put a notice on their front page of the website instead of people having to spend time on figuring out if its their own provider/computer problem or the banks site failure. That would be just a small act of courtesy that they obviously are incapable of.

Aaron Carr · 1 August 2013 - 17:38

someone should contact the Tv / news channels, I bet they get a response ???

'Fee Berry · 1 August 2013 - 17:24

I know that things can't always be perfect and from time to time things do break down, but this is ridiculous!!! I have been trying to log in since yesterday morning. Then last night I finally got into my accounts. But I decided not to transfer any money just in case there was a glitch. I have tried to log in several times this morning and I can't. Could you please let us all know what the hell is going on. On another note, my son is travelling all over Europe and he needs to transfer his money to pay for his flights and accommodation. I'm just waiting to get a call from him and ask me why he can't access the bank via the internet. Come on Westpac.... tell us what is going on and when it will be fixed!!!

"Is it down" reports it as supposedly up and running, but that is not true. Sometimes my browser can get a response from the Westpac opening page, but you are unlikely to get past that, and definitely not into internet banking at the moment.

Funny, that's what IT people are for (yes, I am one) - you have switch-over systems and enough resources to "walk on half a leg". I don't know who designed the Westpac system, but if this can happen (whole website down, come on..) they clearly are over-paying incompetent people - ouch..
