Parnell, a small town in North Island is the land of one of the best boutiques, great chocolates and lively parks. This contemporary styled town is believed to be one of the oldest suburbs in New Zealand. Dominated by French culture, Parnell has various unique designer products.
Parnell not only is one of the oldest suburbs of New Zealand but is quite rich in its history. Right from the 1870s, Parnell had been a source of rapid development, from bridges, reserves, to industries. A mandatory bucket list item for those who wish to explore local boutiques, parks, bistros and galleries, Parnell is also a great opportunity to learn about the Maori history that shaped this French-like suburb in New Zealand.
