+++++++++++++++++++++++++
In its half-year profit announcement on 26 April 2001, ANZ announced
that the Directors proposed an interim dividend of 33 cents be paid
to holders on each ordinary share. This dividend, which is fully
franked, has been declared and will be payable on 2 July 2001 to
holders of fully paid ordinary shares registered in the books of the
Company at the close of business on 17 May 2001.

Shareholders participating in the Company's Bonus Option Plan have
elected to receive bonus shares instead of part or all of the 2001
interim dividend. Shareholders participating in the Dividend
Reinvestment Plan will have their 2001 interim dividend applied to
purchase additional ordinary shares. The issue price for shares
allotted under both these plans is AUD15.05.

Dividends payable to shareholders resident in New Zealand and in the
United Kingdom will be converted to local currency at the market rate
on 17 May 2001.
