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

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!

Parnell is also very close to the CBD with some residents choosing to walk to and from work thus saving driving stress and parking... More

Lovely place for drink or a break. Very relaxing. When you walk through the street, not likely in New Zealand. Funny
