Peculiar street.. spellbound by how steep the street is and imagined the residents staying in the house flanking the street if not using their cars to go up and down.. walking is not an easy deal. nice place to really see it yourself!

We were exhausted from traveling all over the island, BUT we couldn't pass up a chance to climb the steepest street in the world! We weren't even sure if we would make it to the top, but we persevered, we are so glad we did!

Baldwin Street is on the top of most "Must do's" in Dunedin. It's literally just a very steep street, with a small souvenir shop at the bottom. But it's free, and does offer a sense of accomplishment once you reach the top and enjoy the...More

Well it does what it says on the tin. It's ridiculously steep for a residential road. Gets steeper as you go up as well. Couple of little places offering certificates etc, which is enterprising and a cheap souvenir.

we couldn't be in Dunedin and not see the famous Baldwin Street. Hubby is a keen cyclist and runner so this was on his bucket list and he really enjoyed the challenge of running up the street, but those less fit amongst us also excelled!

Typical place where you find a lot of Asian and European tourists, when its only feature is its steep inclination (according to Dunedin Visitor Centre, the steepest in the World... I think you have to compare with San Francisco). Anyway.. interesting.

It is really amazing to see such a steep street. Difficult to climb up. A little scary even driving by car down. It takes just a minute to explore this street. It has good signs to bring you to the right place.

While visiting Dunedin we just had to visit the Steepest Road in the World, Baldwin Street. It is located a few kilometres Northeast of the city centre. With a 35% gradient it really is very steep. Certainly wouldn't want to walk up and down that...More
