"The Worlds Steepest Street." Baldwin Street Tip by allikat
Baldwin Street, Dunedin: 8 reviews and 14 photos
Baldwin Street in Dunedin claims to be the World's Steepest Street. I know there are a couple of other places around the world that claim to be so, but Baldwin certainly is steep! Mostly, people hover around the bottom, gazing up to the top and looking a bit daunted. Some, like me, cheat and drive up to the top, take a picture, and drive back down and away. A few intrepid souls make the whole ascent on foot, and on the day I was there one local in shorts and running vest was repeatedly skipping up and down the hill, sometimes backwards...He must make that a habit, because Baldwin Street has since been on TV after a group of unicyclists made their annual Baldwin Street ascent, and he was in the background doing the same thing.
A gift shop at the bottom will sell you a certificate saying you've climbed it. Call me an old cynic, but shouldn't they be selling them at the top?
