From quaint shops to up and coming bars and restaurants, Parnell has it all.  Jewellers, boutique fashion and the best range of galleries on one street in Auckland.

As the city’s first suburb it has a vibrant mix of rich heritage along with modern sophistication. Parnell is a place unlike anywhere else. It’s not about rushing in and out. Parnell is about the exploration, the journey and the surprise that is around every corner.

Visit Parnell to be welcomed & impressed.
