Looks steep, ran up it for the hell of it. Amazing how cars can enter and exit driveways. View of valley at top although it does not seem that high. Well worth getting out of the car/bus and walking/running up it

We were on a day tour and stopped here for a photo opportunity. Lots of tourists come here to view the world's steepest street. We didn't walk it, but many do.

It was just a street, maybe the steepest but just an ordinary street. Taxi took us there to look but didn’t bother getting out.

Boy was this street steep. We even rolled the red candy our guide Bex gave us. I guess this is one of the things they do a certain time of year. We really enjoyed walking up and down this.

This is a great way to spend a couple of hours in Dunedin and after a post-walk coffee, its a nice walk to the botanic gardens.
