The food group was the largest positive contributor in Perth (+2.9%), Canberra (+2.2%), Melbourne (+1.5%) and Adelaide (+1.4%), driven by increases in fruit prices. The most significant positive contributor for Hobart and Brisbane was the transportation group, with the recreation group and the housing group the main contributors for Darwin and Sydney respectively.
At the eight capital cities level, the transportation group was the second largest positive contributor to the quarterly movement showing increases in all cities.

Over the twelve months to the June quarter 2011, the All groups CPI rose in all capital cities. The largest positive movement was recorded in Adelaide (+3.9%) due to relatively higher increases in the clothing and footwear group. Perth (+3.0%) recorded the smallest positive movement mainly due to a relatively smaller rise in the housing group.
