Parnell is a lovely little suburb that is just a very short taxi ride (or a solid walk up a hill) from the centre of the city. It is a really pleasant and well-maintained area with interesting shops and eateries. Well wort a visit.

In this street many cute places are located. It looks like you are in a complete different world. A beautiful place which is worth your visit. It is not big though, so it is good to walk around or drink a nice cup of coffee.

We went there on Sunday morning, and there was really not much to see. Many shops and restaurants were closed. We wee pretty disappointed.

Although there are a few backpackers around, don't go here if you want to eat cheaply. There isn't a whole lot of choice and the prices are higher than in town. Some quaint shops and things if that's what you're into.

On the way back from Mount Eden to downtown Auckland, dropped by Parnell and felt in love with this tiny town. Heaps of nice restaurants along Parnell road and loads of unique boutique stores around each corners, definitely a place to check out!
