A measure of Australian consumer confidence bounced in June after two months of sharp falls, as The poll of 1,200 people by the Melbourne Institute and Westpac Bank showed its index of consumer sentiment rose 4.7 percent in June , recovering somewhat from a 7.0 percent drop in May.

The June survey was conducted in the week when consumers heard that the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) held its cash rates at a record low 1.50 per cent and the economy expanded at a brisk 1.0 per cent pace in the March quarter.

"While the improved tone to sentiment compared to last year is welcome, the mix is still not pointing to a sustained lift in consumer demand," said Westpac Senior Economist Matthew Hassan.

"That will be mildly disappointing for the RBA with their forecast for above-trend growth this year and next resting in part on a lift in consumption growth."

A separate weekly measure by ANZ-Roy Morgan bounced a strong 5.6 per cent last week.
