It's cool to say that you've walked up the steepest street in the world. Otherwise, it's kind of like a normal street, except, you know, steep.

The worlds steepest residential street. Great fun to make the kids run up and burn off a little energy, or just a good one to knock off yourself... Advice: there are no public toilets anywhere near here so go before you get there.

Such fun to check out this street. The younger ones will enjoy the challenge of running up and down in record time. Take the no. 9 city bus just outside the i-site Centre along George street for only $3 a pax. Bus ride takes about 20 mins.

Why would anyone build a street that steep? Worse still. . . Why would anyone want to live on it? It is always hard to believe the street is as steep as it is until you start driving up it. We went the day after the fundraising Jaffa roll. Check this out on YouTube. Great Fun!!!

Steep is Steep. Don't bother taking a LWB SUV up the top unless there are no other vehicles up there.

A good walk to stretch your legs and get the heart beating. We were lucky enough to meet the famous man who is in the Guinness book of records, Dave Kernahan, for times running up and down the street. He kindly took our photo and had a chat.

This is a fun place to take the kids and the young at heart. The local residents are surprisingly patient with all the tourists taking photos of the steepest street in the world.

The annual Jaffer race is from the top of this street. It is the steepest street in the world. I don't think I'd like to live at the top of this street and have to drive up there.

Great to visit or even walk up if you are brave or fit enough (there is a drinking fountain at the top). Only downside the lack of a public toilet nearby, and the council has been too slow to respond. P.S. You can drive to the top too!
