Exports were down A$903 million or 3.0 percent on month to A$31.871 billion.

Non-rural goods fell A$1.074 billion (5 percent) and rural goods dropped A$85 million (2 percent).

Non-monetary gold surged A$362 million (24 percent), while net exports of goods under merchanting climbed A$12 million (25 percent) and services credits fell A$118 million (2 percent).

Imports gained A$596 million or 2.0 percent to A$31.766 billion.

Intermediate and other merchandise goods added A$385 million (4 percent), while consumption goods gained A$197 million (2 percent) and non-monetary gold jumped A$16 million (4 percent).

Capital goods lost A$120 million (2 percent) and services debits rose A$119 million (2 percent).

Also on Thursday, the Australian Industry Group said that the construction sector in Australia continued to expand in November, and at an accelerated pace, with a Performance of Construction Index score of 57.5.

That's up from 53.2 in October, and it moves further above the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.
