Australia shares show a rare gain, helped by energy bounce

(Updates to close)

SYDNEY, Dec 17 (Reuters) - Australian shares rose 0.2 percent on Wednesday, a rare gain following six sessions of losses.

The S&P/ASX 200 index added 9.6 points to 5,161.9 at the close of trade, supported by a bounce in the energy and natural resources sectors.

New Zealand’s benchmark NZX 50 index had a quiet session and ended unchanged at 5,496.5.
