Simply breathtaking views !

This is a must do for Dunedin! You need to drive up as it is a very steep long road. When you get to the top there us absolutely breath taking 360 views of Dunedin. There is unmarked car parking at the top.
There is a huge viewing area, with larger round concrete pillars , which are very clever. If you have a person lean over each side of the circle - like for a debate- then they amplify your voice . You must try it when you visit. Enjoy and take lots of photos - perfect for the panoramic photo.

Good views of Dunedin and the harbour

Definitely worth the visit if you’re in Dunedin for a few days (or if you’re into mountain biking). Would definitely recommend driving - walking can be a bit difficult with a lack of paths on the road.

A place one must visit to get a panoramic view of the city and
peninsula . Worth the drive. Clear signage to the hill was lacking.

If you’ve got 30 minutes in dunedin signal hill is the perfect excursion. The best view of dunedin city, makes tiki realise how big it actually is. Great for sunrise and sunset as well

Great day-walk!
May 2020
The walk up the track is great for getting in some exercise and the view at the top makes it SO worth it! Not the best for sunrise but the sunsets from Signal Hill are marvellous based on the direction the lookout faces. Highly recommend for any tourists visiting Dunedin or locals who want to get in some exercise!

Signal Hill in Dunedin
Feb 2020
We stopped and visited Signal Hill in Dunedin on a chilly, rainy day last February. Although the view was nice and interesting, unfortunately the weather robbed us of the enjoyment that we would probably have had in good weather. As it was we scurried back to the bus after a few quick looks - hardly doing the location justice. It was nicely landscaped and maintained and the view was nice, but.......

Burn a few calories & enjoy the view

Fantastic free activity! We started the day by walking Baldwin St. & then taking the adjacent street up to Signal Hill Road which takes you to the viewing summit. You will be rewarded with a wonderful panoramic view of Dunedin and the surrounding peninsula. We took the bike trail down... took us about 4 hours to do the entire trip.
