t's a great place for souvenir shopping. Precisely the elephant house. It's a little more expensive but also more authentic.The same goes for the woolly for you store.

“Parnell Thrives”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

With new shops and developments going on, Parnell is becoming its own unique hub, drop in for a coffee or lunch at the many cafes and restaurants available to you. Doing a little shopping at the many boutiques from clothing, homewares, and Jewellery. What ever you choose there's something for everyone.

“Grubby”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

Parnell has lost its charm. Shops are too expensive and most offer poor service.
Some stores are past use by date, I was shocked at how bad the area looks now, paint, steam clean, needs re marketing, parking poor, but bus service good now. Tourists should not bother until it is re done.

“Upmarket area”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

Parnell is a beautiful place, it has plenty of nice restaurants, coffee places and some shops. It is an upmarket area so expect higher prices. They have a few spas offering massages & facials as well. Great place for lunch on a sunny day, then coffee or ice-cream afterwards.
