Parnell, Auckland Central

About Parnell:

Parnell is a suburb of Auckland, New Zealand. It is one of New Zealand's most wealthy suburbs, regularly ranked in the top three richest, and is often referred to as Auckland's "oldest suburb," dating back to the first European settlement of Auckland in 1841.

The suburb is distinguished by a combination of tree-lined streets and vast estates; redeveloped industrial areas with Edwardian townhouses and 1920s bay villas; and a hilly topography that provides views of the port, Waitemata Harbour, Rangitoto Island, and the Auckland Domain.

According to the 2018 New Zealand census, Parnell had a population of 7,563 people and 3,021 households.

Dove-Myer Robinson Park

Dove-Myer Robinson Park, also known as the Parnell Rose Garden, is a park in Parnell that includes a rose garden. Some of the plants in the garden have been bred by internationally renowned rose breeders, and the park hosts the Parnell Festival of Roses each November, which features New Zealand craft stalls, art exhibits, music, strolling performers, and thousands of roses.

Local Schools

Parnell is close to two universities, the University of Auckland and the Auckland University of Technology, as well as several state secondary schools, including Auckland Grammar School, Epsom Girls' Grammar School, St Peter's College, and Baradene College of the Sacred Heart.

Parnell District School is a state full primary school, while ACG Parnell College is a private composite school.

Alright so I arrive back in Auckland and I'm lucky enough to live in a beautiful Parnell house.

At the top of my road is this incredible church with huge stained glass windows.

Do I ever get a good photo despite living here for a year, no. So this is the best I managed 😂

I aren't religious in the slightest, but it certainly provides inspiration for a lot of amazing artwork.

I studied ballet until I was twenty-one, so kicking off my hens party with a barre class was definitely on the cards. We discovered bloombarreandpilates via my friends at romerapp and I’m so glad we did. It’s the most beautiful studio with high ceilings and huge windows in Parnell! I can’t wait to go back for another class when I’m in Auckland next. I’ll share some more photos from the day tomorrow... 🍷🎉⁣
What did you do for your bachelorette/hens party?⁣⁣

Back when I was living in Parnell I signed up for a new gym, despite my reservations on the length of the contract. Eventually, I tried to leave the gym as I was leaving Auckland and they tried to make me pay several hundred dollars to get out of the contract, even though I'd specifically requested this option when I originally signed up. 🤬

Years later I tried to persuade a friend not to make the same mistake I did. But alas she went full steam ahead 😅

Anyway, this is the view from the rooftop terrace. Only really worth coming up to the roof when the ASB Open is on though.
