Purchase of shares on-market for Dividend Reinvestment Plan

As announced on Friday 3 November 2006, National Australia Bank Limited 
('National') intends to neutralise the capital impact of its obligations under
the National's Dividend Reinvestment Plan.

UBS AG, Australia Branch ('UBS') has been appointed as broker to undertake the
purchase and transfer of up to approximately $100 million worth of National
shares on-market under this Plan.

Purchases by UBS will commence today and will continue through the 7 day pricing
period of the Dividend Reinvestment Plan to the close on Monday 27 November
2006.

The terms of the Dividend Reinvestment Plan require the number of shares to be
allocated to participants in the Plan to be rounded up to the next full share.
This will lead to a difference at the end of the pricing period that will be
balanced by UBS prior to close on Tuesday 28 November 2006. The number of shares
that will be subject to rounding will not be material.
