A step street for a walk

It is very, very step street. I can't believe people actually live up there. I watched people drive up and down, I don't think I can do it. Not much view but it is a different... read more

We were glad we saw it. It took about 15 minutes or so roundtrip to walk to the top. Parking at the bottom of the hill was easy and it took about 5 minutes to drive there from CBD.

My husband and I travelled to Dunedin on the motorbike. While we we were there we travelled around to take in the sights . We stumbled across Baldwin street after noticing all the tourists walking up it. My husband decided that we would ride up it (with me on the back) ok then! The tourists were lying on the street...

Great walk up to the top of the world's steepest street. It is a street so watch out for traffic which tends to be a bit faster on the way down.

This was included on a tour. It was loads of fun. We tried to race to the top…needless to say only half of us made it to the top. The houses on the way are very cute although I am sure they are sick of people starring at them!

Do it, just to say you've done it. It took me 9 minutes to get to the top from the very bottom. If you're into competitions like I am challenge your mates to see who can get up the fastest.

This is one tall street. We were a bit time poor as we were on a cruise ship so caught a taxi. We drove up to the top, took some photos and drove back down. Slowly at my wife's request. People were walking up it, some looked like they were about to need a paramedic. Take a taxi!

If you are here.. and have a vehicle. Well you should go here to just have done it.. but don't go to Dunedin for the single purpose of seeing this. It's a street.. and there is a bench on the top of it..

Baldwin Street claims to be the world's steepest street. Who knows, but it's definitely a steep climb. We visited as part of our day tour of the Dunedin/Otago area. We did the hike to the top, where a bench and information plaque are located. The views are great. It's something of a cardiac stress test to climb up, so be... More
