This will depend on your individual situation.

If your loan is older than January 2019, you could be overpaying by thousands of dollars each year.
Loyalty tax refers to when a lender offers new customers low interest rates whilst, at the same time, charging existing customers higher interest rates. Recent data from Lendi showed major banks were on average offering new borrowers interest rates 85 basis points lower than what existing customers of those banks paid.
Start by reviewing your rate to see if it is still competitive. If there are lower interest rates available it may be worthwhile considering switching your home loan. These days, if your loan doesn’t start with a 2, you may be able to significantly reduce your monthly repayments.

Following a number of RBA cash rate cuts, many lenders are now offering lower fixed rate loan products.

A comparison rate is an indicative interest rate used to help consumers compare loans. Also known as the ‘true’ or ‘real’ rate, the comparison rate calculates the average interest rate with the addition of any other upfront or ongoing fees during the loan term. It’s worth noting that comparison rates operate under fixed conditions, which considers a loan of $150,000 on a 25 year loan period with a principal and interest repayment method. Not all fees and charges are included in the comparison rate, so it's important to still check these for any loan you are considering.
Mortgage interest rates change all of the time. Right now, there are cheap fixed rate loans available close to 2%. Your eligibility for the lowest rate on the market will depend on a number of factors including your LVR (loan to value ratio), your income and expenses, it’s worth shopping around with different lenders by chatting to a mortgage broker or comparing your current rate here.

A quicker way, and more efficient use of your time, is to compare cheap home loan rates online. That way you will only see loans you may be eligible for.
