[SYDNEY] Australian shares ended the week with a whimper as investors took some risk off the table ahead of a referendum in Greece that could decide the country's future in the euro zone.

The S&P/ASX 200 index fell 1.1 per cent on Friday to 5,538.3, finishing the week with a 0.1 per cent loss.

New Zealand's benchmark NZX 50 index closed a touch lower at 5,840.9, having turned around from a three-week high of 5,872.7. The index was up 1.5 per cent on the week.
