Baldwin Street

Until 2019, Baldwin Street in Dunedin ranked as the world's steepest street (losing the title to Welsh Ffordd Pen Llech by a 2.45% gradient). If you choose to take the challenging walk uphill, notice the whimsical look houses lining the road had to take on to adjust to the ascent angle.

Do & See

There is much to do and see in Dunedin. Drive the winding road of the Otago Peninsula through Macandrew Bay, a quaint harbour front coastal settlement, ten kilometres from town. Continue to the point of the Peninsula where the blue ocean and white sands meet, to discover yellow eyed penguin settlements, fur seals, sea lions and the elusive Albatross, with the only mainland breeding colony in the world.
