Feels like your touching the clouds. Overlooking Dunedin this is well worth the drive up the hill. It is only 5 mins from Baldwin street so you could do both of these in an hour. Fantastic views.

After booking the city bus tour at I Site this was one of the stop offs for photographs and a great point it is too, viewing all the otago Harbour and surrounding countryside.

Drove up here on our first night in Dunedin. It was really windy and so cold which was a novelty for us having flown in from a hot Brisbane. Lots of fun. Well worth the drive up to see an amazing view across all of Dunedin.

Need vehicle to go up here. About 3 kms from town. Superb views of city, ocean and far far away. Better vista than botanical gardens. On city bucket list.
