Fodor's Review

The lovely Victorian timber villas along the upper slope of Parnell Road have been transformed into antique shops, designer boutiques, cafés, and restaurants. Parnell Village is the creation of Les Harvey, who saw the potential of the old, run-down shops and houses and almost single-handedly snatched them from the jaws of the developers' bulldozers in the early 1960s by buying them, renovating them, and leasing them out. Today this village of trim pink-and-white timber facades is one of the most delightful parts of the city. At night, the area's restaurants and bars attract Auckland's well-heeled set. There are some good jewelry stores, including Hartfields and Sutcliffe, as well as a couple of upmarket art galleries.
