Where it all began in 1969
Macquarie in Australia and New Zealand
Home to our global headquarters, we opened the doors to our Sydney office in 1969 with three people.
From digitally disrupting Australian retail banking to producing 10% of Australia's avocados2, our presence in the region has continued to grow and evolve over our 49-year history.
With local expertise and leading market positions, our offices in Australia and New Zealand have continued to provide opportunities for thousands of our people across 11 locations.

Shelley Street, Sydney
Home to our retail bank, Shelley Street, Sydney features an innovative external ‘diagrid’ structure, which eliminates the need for perimeter columns and maximises the internal floor space. The light-filled interior design features an eight-storey high central atrium and consists of meeting room pods that project into the open space.
