Why do bank transfers take so long Australia?

Why does it take 2 3 days to transfer money?
It’s because all transfers for a bank are done in batches during the day, to an automated clearinghouse.

Do bank transfers go through on weekends Australia?

Why is my bank transfer taking so long?
Deposits can take even longer to happen at times, in part because the bank wants to ensure that the funds are good. They won’t know that the funds are good until the money actually arrives, so many banks will hold deposits for up to 5 business days at times. So be aware of that, and know what your bank’s policy is.
