This is the street that they have the Jaffa Race. Yes it is steep, by the time you get to the top, a rest can be taken on the Park Bench up there which can be used for a Photographic back drop to prove you have been there.

It's a steep street, and walking up is kind of cool... Not much of a scene but its nice and I guess it's about being there and taking selfies. There's one souvenir shop at the foothill, got some nice ceramic made crafts, very pretty and nice if you are the collector type, not for me though. There's also a certificate... More

Our tour bus did not go to the top unfortunately, but had a look from the bottom. It was raining when we went so only a quick look. Street looked steep, but not quite like you would have expected for the steepest street in the world. I guess you had to walk it to see that. Interesting sign explaining all... More

Set a chamllenge for this visit and navigated to the TOP of Baldwin St from the Botanic Gardens. Not and easy walk, probably harder than just simply walking up Baldwin St but a challenge is a challenge especially when the locals tell you there is no other way to get to the top.

Amazing residential street if you are in Dunedin you have to have a look. Make your own mind up when you stand at the bottom whether or not to go up. I let my wife do it for me.

The steepest street in the world and suggest you drive up it rather than walk it (unless you are pretty fit). One section is extremely steep and the rental car only just made it but nice views from the top and some good photo-opportunities
