We’re celebrating all things Greek in Parnell with this Facebook giveaway! You could win a 4-person pass to the ‘Ancient Greeks: Athletes, Warriors and Heroes’ exhibition at Auckland Museum, followed by a meal at Gerome. All you need to do is tell us on Facebook whether your dad is an athlete, warrior or hero. The winner will be drawn on Monday 29 August.

Gifts for Every Dad
For a touch of Kiwiana, look no further than The Fantail House! They have New Zealand made gifts for every dad, whether he’s a kitchen whiz, art lover, jokester… you’ll be sure to find the perfect present.
Let Dad pick a gift for himself by purchasing a gift voucher—like this one from Parnell Gallery. Established in 1976, Parnell Gallery is one of New Zealand’s longest standing dealer galleries, representing and exhibiting a diverse range of established contemporary New Zealand painters, sculptors, and printmakers.
A voucher could also be for a service or experience, like the vouchers available from Massage Me Day Spa. A Massage Me Day Spa gift voucher can be the perfect way to say ‘I love you’ to a tired dad. With everything that’s going on this year, he deserves it.
Plenty of hospitality venues, retail outlets and services in Parnell offer vouchers and gift cards—find the perfect voucher here!
