Sightseeing near Parnell

- Ewelme Cottage

This picture-perfect cottage was built for Rev. Vicesimus Lush and his wife Blanche Hawkins. After Vicesimus and later Blanche passed away, the house was inhabited by their descendants until 1967 when it was bought by the Auckland City Council and leased to the New Zealand Historic Places Trust. Ewelme, which has remained virtually unaltered since the 1880s, is filled with family furniture and possessions, including a fine collection of books, and has a charming cottage garden.

- St. Stephen's Chapel

St Stephen’s Chapel was designed by Frederick Thatcher and opened in early 1857. It is an aesthetically pleasing, well proportioned structure similar in general appearance to the other ‘Selwyn Churches’ of the time. The historical significance of St Stephen’s lies in the chapel’s association with this very important event in the history of the Church of England in New Zealand, its link with Bishop Selwyn and the fact that it occupies the site of one of the first churches built in New Zealand under his direction.
