Remarkable street, which we preferred to walk up instead of driving up. And we met a 65 year old that runs it up and down 30 times each day... stay young. but for the rest, it is... read more

It is just a street which is steep. Not sure that it would be the steepest street in the world. It is good exercise getting to the top! A local person on the street told us it wasn't the steepest street at all! Good value as it is free!

The Guiness Book of Records confirms that this is the steepest street in the world, and our car had every reason to believe it as it struggled it's way to the top of the hill. Whether looking up or down the street, it is genuinely steep. Once a year they have a competition rolling "Jaffa Balls" down it as a... More

Well from the bottom of the street it is a long way up, there are walking up steps to the right hand side of street looking up the hill. Saw a lot of people walking up but its a long way. To save a heart attack, our private guide drove us up, stopping half way then at the top for... More

We walked up the hill in the morning, it was cold but we were soon warm. There is a seat at the top with a painted mural. There are steps up the sides that we used on the way down. Great feeling, well,worth the effort.

Couple of miles from the city centre. Easy access on local bus. Got to walk to the top to fully appreciate the slope and see the mural. Cars struggle to get up it.

The younger members of the family, walked to the top of this amazing street. Would like to see it when the "Jaffa balls" from Cadbury are let go down it.

During my last trip to Dunedin, I just had to return to Baldwin Street with three colleagues to do the walk to the top - and I managed to achieve it. One of our colleagues stayed in the car while the other two walked with me to the top. It was a challenge but an enjoyable one which I would... More
