A funny little stop off

It's all good fun, it's nothing serious, just a bit of a silly stop on our way out of Dunedin. We walked to the top, took in the view, took some silly photos then went back down... read more

It's all good fun, it's nothing serious, just a bit of a silly stop on our way out of Dunedin. We walked to the top, took in the view, took some silly photos then went back down - not sure how you can give it bad reviews as it's simply a residential street!

We arrived to Baldwin Street and saw all the people walking up. Why??? If you've got the right car (like we had a Toyota Land Cruiser) it's the perfect adventure to drive up and down the hill. It's such a great feeling when you're driving down and you nearly fall out of the seat. Also it's nice to see the... More

I did it!!!!! Oh well, only half way but I tried. It is said to be the steepest road and I have no argument with this. Seeing is believing. Photos do not do it justice.. But a must see while in Dunedin.

Wouldn't bother going there in future unless it was the day they release the Jaffas. The houses in the suburb are pretty average. It was raining at the time so we did not get out and walk up, but there were two young ones who ran up in a matter of minutes. Much steeper tracks to climb around the country.... More

Having recently also visited another leading contender for the 'World's steepest street' (in Harlech, North Wales) I am pleased to confirm that Baldwin Street knocks the socks off it in terms of visual impression. I went at what was evidently a quiet time but was still entertained by seeing people jogging up it and cycling down it. One of the... More

It isnt often you get to see things featured in the Guiness Book of records for free. It is worth seeing to say you have seen it but to be honest it is just a very steep street. I wasnt expecting anything great as I knew it was just a residential street. It would have been good to have taken... More

A very steep suburban street, lined by un-interesting houses & with not much of a view from the top.

Yes, all you do is walk to the top of a very steep street, but it has to be done so that you can take amazing photos of yourself and friends leaning at impossible angles on a residential street! A nice touch is the water drinking fountain when you do get to the top - if its a hot day,... More

Almost feels more exhausting to drive up than it is to walk up. Good place to visit if passing by. Even has the convenience of a bench seat at the top.

In the Guinness Book of Records as the world's steepest residential street. Easy parking to get out and take a few fun photos.
