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.


Parnell’s Artweek Day is Saturday 10 October. Come and experience an array of art forms and be delighted with the number of galleries all within walking distance in Parnell – the creative quarter! Join us on a bike tour, visit the exhibitions in one of the many galleries, attend talks, take tours or view the live painting performance. Enjoy the visual feast, refuel in one of the many cafés or restaurants and head back for more. Learn about restoration of artworks and heritage buildings or enjoy taking part in a writing workshop.

All events are free – it’s about participation, involvement, appreciation and enjoyment!
