Its good little walk to the to with a beautiful bench and water fountain to catch your breath and look back on the view before walking down again. Its 100% free and... More

We went as it was on the way to Christchurch. Glad that we did. Took some really fun pictures. However, as we were tired, we only attempted to climb for them steep. It really wasn't easy.

Our wonderful tour guide Ann (wife of Kim of kk Kim tranport) was so nice. She was suppose to take us from our hotel to the bus stop, bus since we had extra time, she took us to Baldwin St. She said they have contests rolling things down Baldwin St. We took pictures from down below the street. Don't miss... More

There's a mural, seat to admire the view and water fountain at the top. Don't be a loser and drive up...as the signs request you not to.

Worth the view, yes it's a hard walk up but it's worth it when you get to the top. There is a water fountain at the top too.

this walk is better taken when the weather is not too hot & not too cold; great for those with mild asthma - just take it slowly & use your inhaler if necessary, but stop every now & then to take deep breaths 7 open up the lungs. Great feeling when you eventually get to the top

Just by staring the top of the street made my neck sore. We didn't try walking up cause we have kids with us. But it is one of a bloody steep street for sure. I can't imagine driving on that street every day. Being a residential area this would be the safest place to run when tsunami ( which i... More

I took my 85 year old mother here and she walked to the top she was a bit out of breath but she said she is so glad she got to the top. Well worth a trip.

Worth a visit for photo opportunity. If you are energetic you could try walking up it. Very steep but I'm not sure it is the steepest street in the world! We drove up to the top and down again.

You can't go to Dunedin and not visit Baldwin Street. We caught a no.9 bus from the city and the right took about 20 minutes. The bus stops directly opposite the street. It is quite a bit of a climb to get all the way to the top but once up there, you can say you have conquered the steepest... More
