Australian inflation slowed more than expected in the June quarter thanks to falls in the cost of holidays and petrol, suggesting less pressure for another hike in interest rates.

Data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics on Wednesday showed the consumer price index (CPI) rose 0.8% in the second quarter, the smallest gain since the third quarter of 2021 and under market forecasts of 1.0%.

The annual pace slowed to 6.0%, from 7.0%, and again below forecasts of 6.2%. For June alone, the CPI rose 5.4% compared to the same month a year earlier, down from 5.5% in May.

A closely watched measure of core inflation, the trimmed mean, rose 0.9% in the June quarter, pushing the annual pace down to 5.9% and just under forecasts of 6.0%.
