Well worth going to get an overall perspective of Dunedin. Grassy area with parking available, although I was on a bus tour.

I asked the people at the i-Site about Signal Hill, and they told me a city bus went up there- great! Unfortunately the bus stop is in the residential neighborhood nowhere near the peak. I walked maybe half or 3/4 of the way up the hill, but saw no indication of how far the peak was (or even if there was a lookout- I wasn't sure at the time), so I gave up. The view from halfway up was nice enough.

We were out for a drive and came across a sign indicting the lookout. We headed in the direction but then couldn't find anymore signs to confirm we were going in the right direction. You go from residential into farm/forestry type scenery but keep on going, eventually you get there and the view across Dunedin and the harbour is great.

A nice hill for a lookout and a good view of Dunedin. It has a couple of really big - and kind of creepy - statues. When we went, it was extremely windy and cold (and we went at the end of spring!) so bring warm clothes! Maybe it would be a pleasant place to go in the summertime when it gets hot.
It takes about 15 minutes to drive there and 5 minutes to view.
We saw some people camping in their campervan, and while it is quiet and out of the way, it would be extremely cold I can imagine.
If you are very short on time, I probably wouldn't recommend Signal Hill as a high priority place to visit, although it doesn't take too long.
