NATIONAL'S DIVIDEND PACKAGE



National Australia Bank Limited ('National') today announced it had completed an
update of its Dividend Reinvestment Plan, Bonus Share Plan and UK Dividend Plan 
('Dividend Package') (attached).



The updates principally relate to non-material market conforming changes.  These
include:



•         National now has the flexibility to arrange for participants to
receive shares under the Dividend Reinvestment Plan which are bought on market 
and transferred to them.  Previously participants could only be issued new 
shares.

•         Several non-material changes have been made to the pricing mechanism
when share entitlements are determined:

•         the price will now be determined over a seven day trading period
(previously it was calculated over four trading days);

•         the pricing period will now commence on the day after the record date
(previously it was two days after); and

•         the Directors of the National have the discretion to adopt a different
pricing period in respect of any dividend.  If they do so, the new pricing 
period will be announced to the ASX.

•         National will now notify participants of any material changes to the
plans.  Previously participants were required to be advised of all changes, no 
matter how minor.  All changes will continue to be announced to the Australian 
Stock Exchange in accordance with the Listing Rules.



At the same time, National has updated its Dividend Package shareholder booklet
which explains how each plan works.  A copy is available on the National's
website www.nabgroup.com
