Baldwin street is one street you don't want to live in UNLESS you are fit and have a stomach for driving on steel streets!! Its definitely worth walking and/or driving up the street to say you have been up the world's steepest street. For me, it was about keeping my eyes closed part of the way down in the car!!... More

Its just a steep street. Its hard work to climb. But its still so much fun. Steps make it much easier. Walking down is almost harder than walking up. And there is cold water and a seat at the top.

We used to live down North end so have walked up this street many times, it is very steep, we also drove a very old car down there, it was so steep.

I went to Baldwin Street first thing in the morning on a very chilly day in late May. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of not charging my camera battery enough before my trek up the hill. In addition to a good morning workout, the view from the top is spectacular. Although this is the steepest street in the world, and... More

Finally! A childhood dream realised... jaffa run on Baldwin St. Oh wait and to walk up it, down it. Ride up it and down it! Lie on it, stand on it... World Famous... Done and Dusted!

What would a trip to Dunedin be without visiting the worlds steepest street?! Park at the bottom then start your trek to the top - and just wonder at the crazy people who choose to run up and down! Don't forget to get you certificate of proof at the bottom!

This has to be a brake manufacturer's dream; you are virtually on the brake 100% when coming downhill. Other than the steep gradient, there is nothing really exceptional about the street. Just a tourist attraction thanks to the steepness and the Guinness Book of Records, but worth stopping to look or take a walk to the top

Was on a road trip and Dunedin was one of the destination. It was like a home coming trip as I used to live there for quite sometimes during my uni days. Just had to visit Baldwin Street while there and to take a little walk up the hill. The view was stunning from up there and there were plenty... More

We just decided to drive by Baldwin Street and my boyfriend insisted we drive up to the top. It was quite a thrill and we did see lots of people making the journey on foot. We had just finished the Tunnel Beach walk so didn't need the exercise. Worth a quick look if you are in town.
