Parnell is a representative of Auckland in a street. There's lots to see and shops to tempt you for your shopping therapy and more then that it's vibrant and alive especially their cafes and restaurants.

It didnt do it for us. We got off the bus one end and back on again at the other. Unless you want to eat or shop nothing else there

Parnell is a street full of charm with varied shops, has a very good chocolateria and during the weekends has a French market with varieties of pastries and breads

We enjoyed looking at the shops and particularly the Victorian architecture in the area. It is a great place to spend an afternoon.
