Aussie reopening set for next week


Jennifer and Peter Low are working hard on the final touches to the Australasian Hotel so they can reopen the historic Greymouth pub, which was closed recently due to liquidation of the previous owners. Mr Low, who has 30 years’ experience working at Monteith’s Brewery and owned Super Liquor for nine years, said the ‘Aussie’ had been a good pub over the years. “We were sick and tired of places in Greymouth closing down. We want to see something reopen, not close.” They hope to open the hotel by the end of next week, and reopen the restaurant at a later date.
