If shopping is your purpose, this is an interesting place to visit, especially with another like-minded friend. I especially enjoyed visiting the cathedral and the farmers' market.

Parnell is pretty "hip" as a place. Old buildings, well preserved. Has plenty of space and charm to walk-around.

Some of the better restos of Sydney are around (try the Blue Elephant and Oh Calcutta) plus the Auckland Museum is a 15' walk from here.

We were lucky to be staying in Parnell and enjoyed the opportunity. Get over here for a drink or food. You'll enjoy the surroundings.

More and more people have flocked back to Parnell since my last visit.

The Irish Pub has changed hands and Parnell should see another great night spot opening shortly.

Blue Elephant Thai remains a fav - check out the lunch special.

Although Esquires coffee is a chain I found the staff very friendly so great to pop in to use their free Wifi also.

Well worth the five minute trip up the hill from the city.

I visited this area of Aukland for a little while one evening when we enjoyed a some great Indian meal with some very kind New Zealanders.

This area is way over-rated. Someplaces report it as an "up market" area. We found it rather grubby in all respects. Your time can be better spent at other venues in and around Auckland.
