What you need to know

No, don't try to adjust your screen - while the angle of the world's steepest residential street might look like an optical illusion, this Dunedin-area suburb has become something of an internet phenomenon due to its seemingly preposterous angle. Possessing of a thigh-burning 1:3 gradient (that's a 35% incline), Baldwin Street serves as a physical challenge for those wanting to ascend to the top, albeit granting some great views over the city's North-East valley in return for your efforts.

While the surface of the road can be walked itself, there are also stairs running parallel that can make the climb slightly easier, and upon reaching the top you'll come away with a definite sense of self-achievement. Photography here is also immensely popular, as taking snaps with your camera from road-level gives the impression of the street's houses being perched at a truly odd angle.

The street also plays host to a number of quirky annual events to take advantage of its slope; notably the Cadbury Chocolate Carnival with its iconic Jaffa Race in which 30,000 large jaffa sweets are rolled down the street, and the Baldwin Street Gutbuster which sees around 1000 challengers racing to the top of the street and back down. Take it at your own pace if visiting, and enjoy this unusual - and free - attraction at your leisure.

NOTE

  • Takes around 10 minutes to walk up despite its short length
  • Street is made of concrete rather than asphalt
  • Be sure to bring your camera for some odd-looking travel shots
