    Hi,

    Australian Agricultural Company since 1824 http://www.aaco.com.au/AboutUs.aspx is still trading as the same company.

    Australian Gas and Light since 1837
    Company Overview | AGL Energy

    Westpac Bank Corporation previously known as Bank of New South Wales opened on April 8, 1817

    Westpac - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I'm sure anyone with a bank account from Bank of New South Wales is probably still able to use it.

    Cheers,

    Dan
