    Beautiful smooth track descending down to the point. Note: not for the weak heart on the way up lol Take your time just strolling both ways along the track, take in the views! THEY'RE AMAZING!!
    Getting to walk through the tunnel down onto the private beach amoung some massive boulders was worth my dying thighs & lungs (be sure to be aware of tides if going down to the beach) lol even more so if you have read the history behind it :)
    Take caution if you go on a slightly windier day, wear comfy foot/grippy footwear & spray jacket if you plan to go near the edge because the waves send buckets of sea spray up & over if the winds heading the right direction.
    All in all, Stunning place to visit if ever in the Dunedin area!

    The locals sneered at our enthusiasm to visit Baldwin Street, stating that there are many steep streets in Dunedin. But there is something significant about walking up THE steepest street in the WORLD. Although it lost its title in 2019 to a challenger in North Wales, it regained its status from the Guinness Book of Records in April 2020. Steep it is and definitely worth a visit! We were the only 2 people there at the time and enjoyed meandering to the top where there is a mural, water drinking fountain and bench (in desperate need of repainting).

    As a walk this is pleasant, but a word of caution, this should only be done by the sure footed.
    The track in is dirt and stone and has some steep parts, so even with a little precipitation this track is quite slippery: wear good shoes.
    Secondly, the very last section to the organ pipes is a steep climb over stones and rocks: not for the faint hearted or kids.
    Parking is very limited at the start too, maybe for 4-6 cars only, depending on how they are parked!

    Murray gave us a great ride down the peninsula, tailoring the ride so we could meet up with friends along the way. He is very knowledgeable and, more importantly, an excellent operator of the trike. His friendly, engaging manner was a highlight of the trip and we definitely recommend this experience to anyone happy to get a bit chilly on an exhilarating ride! Great fun!

    Wonderful private lesson for very happy 10 year old. We booked a private lesson for our horse-mad 10 year old when visiting Dunedin and were really, really appreciative of the professionalism and kindness at Hare Hill Horse Treks. She learnt heaps and had a wonderful time. Such a beautiful location too. My only tip to park by the road at the bottom of the driveway as it's pretty steep heading up there. Thanks Hare Hill

    Brilliant and listens. Casey is significantly more professional and capable at managing people and expectations than any one I know in the industry. He knows the area, the fish and the bug life. No matter your experience, he'll put you onto fish. BUT more importantly, he'll treat you like an adult. Best customer experience I've had in fishing, period.

    My grandson chose this as part of birthday present and...he chose the room!! I admit to jumping few times throughout the experience but the whole thing was grand and we both loved it. My 5th escape room experience and I have to say the best one. The staff member who dealt with us was great, helpful and friendly
