Shares of banks and financials were higher. Among top four banks, Commonwealth Bank of Australia, ANZ Bank, Westpac, and National Australia Bank were up in a range of 0.5% to 1%.

WTI crude declined $0.13 or 0.19 percent to close at $66.81 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange, a fresh seven-week low. Among oil stocks, Inpex and Japan Petroleum declined in a range of 0.5-4%. Among miners, Rio Tinto, BHP Billiton, and Fortescue Metals declined in a range of 0.1-0.3%. Among energy stocks, Woodside Petroleum and Oil Search were down in a range of 0.2% to 1%.

BHP Billiton said a federal court in Brazil has approved a settlement deal between its joint venture Samarco and Brazil authorities over a deadly 2015 dam collapse.

Among individual stocks: shares of REA Group rose after real estate giant's posted 23% jump in net profit on the back of 20% jump in revenue despite a housing slowdown for fiscal year ended June 2018.
