If you have a longer term goal and can resist the temptation of dipping into your funds, consider a term deposit.

 

Your return and interest rate are fixed with flexible interest payment options available. You can invest a substantial amount, or as little as $1000 with terms ranging from 30 days up to 5 years. 

 

The Australian Government's Financial Claims Scheme (FCS) protects people's deposits in the unlikely event that a bank, building society or credit union fails. It only covers banking institutions that are incorporated in Australia, and has been known as the Australian Government deposit guarantee.
