Steepish street in the world. Nice train station nearby.

Holy moly, hold onto your hats! Don't attempt to drive up it unless you're an experienced driver with a gutsy car. There is a small flat bit at the top with room to do a 3 point turn ready for the decent. Also cool bench and street art at the top which is new. If your ankles can handle it walk it - look at the angle of the houses -v- the road, quite amazing! The shop at the bottom of the street (just around the corner) is well worth a look - you can buy certificates which state you went up the steepest street in the world.

If your in Dunedin, then this is something to check out. Crazy steep - you'd better have a good clutch on your vehicle if you plan on driving up it. Walking it is fun too though.

Fun, lots of tourists but still fun and a good view of Dunedin.
