- Travel Info: Despite its sense of quiet sanctuary, The Rock on Gibraltar is just steps away from the boutiques, restaurants and galleries of elegant Parnell, and minutes from the shopping precinct of Newmarket, downtown and the vibrant waterfront. Auckland’s large and leafy Domain presides over this charming enclave, but you’ll find plenty of other park-like spaces and gardens to enjoy on a leisurely stroll. Parnell's charming village shopping area boasts more than 40 restaurants, cafes and bars, not to mention many of Aucklands most prestigious galleries and jewellers. The nightlife here is of the sophisticated variety. Linger until late at one of Parnells perennial classic eateries such as Cibo, Antoines or Non Solo Pizza, or enjoy fine cuisines from around the globe, before enjoying an expertly made cocktail from an intimate neighbourhood bar. Parnell is blessed with mature tree-lined streets and lovingly preserved historic buildings. These include the Auckland War Memorial Museum, the wooden gothic St Mary's Holy Trinity Cathedral, and the Parnell Rose Gardens - overlooking Auckland Harbour and blooming lovely on balmy Auckland summer evenings.
