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 one of the suburbs of Auckland and well worth a visit. It has a lovely village feel to it and abounds with shops and good eating places. The Rose Garden is a welcome haven of peace and tranquility.

The shops tucked away in laneways and byways help to make Parnell what it is. There are interesting shops with unusual items to look at and buy and many good quality food and drink outlets interspersed. It is easy to spend a bit of time...More
