Dividends

The final dividend of 69 cents per share, fully franked, will be paid on 15 December 2006.

A Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRP) and Bonus Option Plan (BOP) are available to shareholders, and ANZ also operates a Dividend Charity Donation Program for shareholders who are Australian resident taxpayers. Copies of the terms and conditions of the Plans, and details of the Donation Program, are available from the ANZ's Share Registry at the addresses shown below.

In order to reduce costs, minimise the potential for fraud and enhance convenience for shareholders, ANZ has implemented a direct credit payment policy regarding dividend payments to shareholders in Australia, New Zealand and Great Britain (including the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands) (other than to those who have elected to participate fully in either the DRP, BOP or Dividend Charity Donation Program).

Removal From Mailing List

Shareholders who do not wish to receive a copy of the Concise Annual Report must advise the Share Registry in writing or you can register your email address via www.anz.com and elect to access your shareholder information electronically instead of receiving it by mail.

Change Of Address

Shareholders who have changed their address will need to advise the Share Registry in writing, quoting their shareholder number, name and company as applicable.

If you have purchased your shares through a broker you will need to inform your broker of the change.

eTree Logo

ANZ is proud to be a foundation member of eTree, a Computershare initiative with Landcare Australia.

Register to receive all your shareholder communications electronically through eTree and in return ANZ will make a donation of up to $2 to Landcare Australia to support reforestation projects across Australia and New Zealand.

ANZ has set a target to donate the equivalent of up to 250,000 trees and we encourage more shareholders to register and help give back to our environment.
