MEDIA RELEASE 

ANZ today announced it would cut interest rates on variable home and
residential investment loans and ANZ-branded credit cards by 0.25%pa,
following the Reserve Bank of Australia's decision this morning to
lower the Official Cash Rate.

Effective 14 December 2001 the interest rate for ANZ's standard
variable rate home and residential investment loans will be reduced
by 0.25%pa, from 6.32%pa to 6.07%pa for both new and existing
customers. ANZ's other variable rate owner occupied and residential
investment loans will also decrease by 0.25%pa.

ANZ customers with standard variable loans will continue to benefit
from features such as no monthly fees and 100% offset facility.

Interest rates for ANZ-branded credit cards will fall by 0.25%pa,
effective 20 December 2001.

Interest rates for small business lending are currently under review.
