(agency of Junee)
 Geoff Chapman reports: We also evidently had an Agency at Ilabo. which can be added to the list of Branches, R/O's and Agencies. If you have ever driven thru this village, you would wonder why, though a friend of mine who lived the first 20 years of his life in Junee, tells me Ilabo was once a booming little town.
1970s Agency and Junee branch closed, according to NSW Heritage.

John Beer states that CBC was never represented here, and that it was a Commercial Bank of Australia point of representation.

2008 November Geoff Chapman advised: Peter McCarthy, the owner of the ex City Bank/ABC Bank/Bank of NSW premises in Delungra searched for photos he has of Otho Street Inverell CBC premises, which closed in 1989, when the branch relocated. The photos are streetscapes which include the Branch at left and are depicted at left. His wife worked at Inverell branch 1956-1962.
