This is a fun hill to climb! There is a set of stairs on the right that really helped! It was a little slippery on the street when it was raining, but the view from the top is beautiful. If you like to hike, this is the hill for you! :)

It's a street. It's super steep. It's fun! Honestly, I feel like you kinda need to do it, just because... If you're reasonably fit, you can walk up and down with pictures in between in about 30 minutes. There are steps, but I actually found it easier to walk along the edge so I could adjust my own stride. This... More

The hill is extremely steep. The worst part is that the sign posts say you cannot go up and turn about. We were concerned that our small rental car would not get to the top.

Of course I was going up that street! I plowed up quickly, not on the side with the steps. I descended on the steps. Proud of myself!

For the novelty this was fun and it is free. Really though it is a suburban street in Dunedin so parking is tricky. They have a great interpretive sign at the bottom of the street. My husband made it to the top and said that the view from the bottom doesn't do the street justice - pity he didn't take... More

It's a steep street but looks just like many others in the region. There's no great place to turnaround either. Skip it.

This was in the list of things that I definitely wanted to do when I was in Dunedin. And was it worth it? Ohh boy... It definitely was..! Walking up a street that steep requires some energy - i say some only because it is just around 350 meters long. But that 350 meters are more than enough for one... More

When visiting Dunedin don't miss a visit to this iconic street! Well worth a walk up to the top even though it's a great workout! Lovely view from the top too.

This is a free quirky little thing to be done on the way to or from any activity in Dunedin. Google jaffa race day, it really can not be missed.
