Parnell is a lovely suburb! If u walk from britomart just keep walking through beach road to the parnell rise, here on the left a lovely park! U can find very interesting gallery and shops, bar and little restaurants! I really suggest the french market during the weekend in the morning!

Lot's of average cafes, a few good ones. Some boutique shops, but mostly average. Nice enough place for a stroll on a sunny day. I preferred getting away from central Parnell to the French Market and around to the rose gardens, now that was cool!
