When there as part of a tour with Good Company Tours. Interesting. Would not like to live there. There is the famous Cadbury Jaffa Race held down Baldwin Street, the steepest street in the world.

Only heard of this by chance well worth a quick visit. Not much to do other than walk or drive up a very steep street but it is in the Guinness Book of Records and is memorable.

It was fun to walk up this street and happily there are stairs which make it easier. Not an absolute essential but if you have time it's a fun trip.

This is a fun hill to climb! There is a set of stairs on the right that really helped! It was a little slippery on the street when it was raining, but the view from the top is beautiful. If you like to hike, this is the hill for you! :)

It's a street. It's super steep. It's fun! Honestly, I feel like you kinda need to do it, just because... If you're reasonably fit, you can walk up and down with pictures in between in about 30 minutes. There are steps, but I actually found it easier to walk along the edge so I could adjust my own stride. This... More

The hill is extremely steep. The worst part is that the sign posts say you cannot go up and turn about. We were concerned that our small rental car would not get to the top.

Of course I was going up that street! I plowed up quickly, not on the side with the steps. I descended on the steps. Proud of myself!

For the novelty this was fun and it is free. Really though it is a suburban street in Dunedin so parking is tricky. They have a great interpretive sign at the bottom of the street. My husband made it to the top and said that the view from the bottom doesn't do the street justice - pity he didn't take... More
