When in Dunedin drive out to Baldwin street, it’s the steepest residential street in the world, looks great, and in winter the Cadbury factory race jaffas down the street to raise money for charity. Pretty cool

Baldwin street is the world's steepest residential street, according to the Guinness World Records. It is close to the Botanic Garden. The walk up the street takes approximately 15mins depending how often you take a pause. Great photos opportunities here!

Testing walk to the top of the town. The young ones made it to the top and called us to keep going. In end we made it and the view was well worth it. Found several Jaffas on way back down!

This has to be seen to be believed and if possible drive or walk to the top - the view is terrific. Little shop at the bottom has postcards.

Didn't take long and it's do-able even if you aren't that fit. There were maybe a dozen or so people walking up & down in the time we were there. Was fun taking photos and marvelling at the world's steepest street. Be sure your car...More
