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.


It’s exciting times for Parnell as the Auckland Arts Festival kicks off, bringing with it the return of White Night. Parnell is delighted to be one of the key venues for this spectacular event and has planned a stunning programme for everyone to enjoy.

From 6pm ’til the clock strikes 12, you’ll be free to explore nooks and crannies, laneways and parks with curious installations placed up and down Parnell Rd. Galleries and eateries will be open till late, and several artists will present static and interactive installations for everyone to enjoy. Heard Park will be alive with activity throughout the evening, so make sure you don’t miss out on this popular section of the festivities.
