Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My friend and I drove here after our meal at Saint Clair. Beautiful location however we went on a cloudy day so didn't quite get the best view that we could have. Would love to come back when the weather is a bit nicer.

Fabulous views across Dunedin and out to sea. It’s very peaceful up there and, if you’re lucky enough to have good weather like us, you can see for miles.

We saw a runner, walker and cyclists up there ( so it can be done) but glad we took the car, it’s a long, steep road to the top.

It's a fair old drive up there but, like most high-vantage viewpoints, it's worth the journey. The views out over Dunedin and the harbour-way are stunning, provided the weather is kind. Some great photos.

This is free and can be visited during the day to see everything or at night to view the city lights. 2 statues at this lookout. The road leading here is uphill and narrow in parts with blind corners.

Great view of Dunedin. We drove up but if we’d realised we might have got a lift up and walked the 6kms down to the city. Lucky to be there on a clear day. No coffee or toilets.

Signal Hill Lookout is a short drive from Dunedins city centre.

It offers stuninng views all around the Dunedin region.

There is ample parking and on the day ww visited no more than 10 people visited.

Its also home to a monument with two bronze statues dedicated to the New Zealand Centennial.

I noticed several mountain bikers startthat start here to go downhill through the mountain trails.

Was expecting a bit more spectacular but there are many trees around and the views are in the distance. Still worth a visit to get an idea of the layout of the geography of the land. Only about a 5 minute stay required.

This was part of the tour that Bec took us on from Bookatour. She is so knowledgeable about the area and the view from up here was spectacular

High above the town signal hill gives magnificent views over the town and its surround. We got there by taxi which was part on a $88 dollar trip for the two of us that took in Baldwin street and a bit of the town, felt like good value!
