Baldwin Street

Located in Dunedin's North East Valley suburb. Used to be the world's steepest street according to Guinness World Records, but in 2019 they found a slightly steeper street in Harlech, Wales. Take the ten minute walk to the top or drive up to enjoy the view looking down! There is a drinking fountain at the top. Some people have tried, and a few have succeeded, cycling all the way up Baldwin Street - try it if you're a keen cyclist. That said, you will need to be careful coming back down - chances are the cycle's brakes will do little to slow a descent at such an incline!
