    Baldwin Street in NZ, the steepest road in the world!... Scary!

    Baldwin Street in Dunedin - the steepest street in the world

    Baldwin Street, at Dunedin's Northern end is reputed by the Guinness Book of Records as being the steepest street in the world.
    35% gradient =
    1:2.86 You are advised against taking a car up the street so no cheating please. It is a very invigorating walk to the top on a cold day. Only about a ten minute walk but you can sure feel it.

    At its maximum, the slope of Baldwin Street is approximately (19° or 35%) - that is, for every 2.86 metres travelled horizontally, the altitude rises by 1 metre.















    "In 2001 a 19-year-old University of Otago student was killed when she and another student attempted to travel down the street inside a wheeled rubbish bin. The bin collided with a parked trailer, killing one of the occupants instantly, and causing serious head injuries for the second."

    Most of nice scenery is in the South Island..... North Island is too "commercial" liao....... busy cities... Remember to visit Queenstown and Milford Sound....
