Caledonia Inv PLC

Re New Zealand Listing

Caledonia Investments PLC
29 October 2004



Listing on the New Zealand Exchange



Caledonia Investments plc ('Caledonia') announces that the New Zealand Exchange
('NZX') has approved the listing of its ordinary shares, as an overseas listed
issuer, with effect from 1 November 2004.  This will enable investors in New
Zealand to buy and sell Caledonia's ordinary shares through NZX at a price
quoted in New Zealand dollars.



Caledonia's listing on the London Stock Exchange will be unaffected by the
above.



Commenting on the announcement, Tim Ingram, Caledonia's Chief Executive, said:



'We are very pleased to have achieved a listing in New Zealand, which is a
further step in our efforts to market Caledonia more actively to retail
investors.'



Mark Weldon, CEO of the New Zealand Exchange Limited, added:



'We are delighted that Caledonia has decided to list on the New Zealand
Exchange, taking the total number of UK domiciled investment trusts listed in
New Zealand to 15.  NZX's goal is to make it simpler for New Zealanders to
invest in shares.  Having access to international stocks makes portfolio
diversification that much easier.'
