Australia posted a seasonally adjusted merchandise trade deficit of A$285 million in May, the Australian Bureau of Statistics said on Thursday.
That beat forecasts for a shortfall of A$500 million following the revised A$26 million deficit in April - which was originally reported as a A$203 million deficit.
Imports were up 3 percent on year, while exports added 2 percent on year.
