The Australian dollar is slightly lower, paring back gains made after the release of strong growth indicators from China.

At 0630 AEDT on Monday, the Australian dollar was at 105.10 US cents, down from Friday's local close of 105.23 US cents.

The currency rallied as high as 105.59 US cents on Friday after official data showed China's gross domestic product (GDP) grew 7.8 per cent in the 12 months to December, compared to a rise of 7.4 per cent in the 12 months to September.
