A late rally from mining and health care stocks has lifted the Australian share market into the green despite energy shares and the big four banks dragging on the index.

The benchmark S&P/ASX200 index closed 8.4 points, or 0.14 per cent, higher at 5849.2 at 1615 AEDT on Friday, while the broader All Ordinaries was up 0.17 per cent.

The Australian dollar is trading at a near-one month high despite subdued retail sales suggesting third-quarter economic growth could disappoint. It is buying 72.38 US cents from 71.27 US cents on Thursday.
