There is no default application on the Mac, other than Text Editor (which it sounds like you are using), but not to worry; visit Google Docs (https://docs.google.com/), upload the file, and you will be able to view it. Alternatively, the free Libre Office or Neo Office can view these files. However, with Google Docs, these files will exist in the cloud, meaning they are automatically backed-up and viewable from any device you own, and so I would recommend using that over downloading Libre Office or Neo Office.

Or you could buy Pages (part of iWork, but wait until 6 January and you can probably buy it by itself in the OS X App Store) or even Office 2011.
