Overstaying WHV by one day?

I arrived on June 12th 2014, does this mean I can leave on June 12 2015 at the latest or do I have to leave on June 11th?

I'm sure they have lots of people doing this and I wondered what will happen if you leave then?

I would take it that you need to leave by midnight on the 11th June. Otherwise your staying over a year.

Overstaying will cause issues if you want to come back into Australia again in the future - even if it is a day.

Likely a 3 year ban if you overstay by any time and if you ever wanted to apply for another visa for Australia your previous overstay could affect the decisions made especially on character judgement.
