Experience these vibrant, whimsical artworks on the Dunedin Street Art trail. Artists include ROA (Belguim), Pixel Pancho (Italy), Phlegm (UK), Natalia Rak (Poland), Dal East (China), Mica Still (NZ) to name a few.

Looking for some ideas to get out and about with the family? We have some ideas...
In Dunedin’s North East Valley, Baldwin Street is recognised by the Guinness Book of Records as the steepest street in the world. The street runs up the northern side of Signal Hill, at slopes of up to 1:2.86 (for 2.86m horizontal distance, a rise of 1m). Try counting the steps; it takes about ten minutes, just to walk about 350 metres! But don't worry, there's a drinking fountain at the top. It is the venue of the world-famous Jaffa Race that takes place annually during Cadbury’s Dunedin Chocolate Carnival where 25,000 sweets are rolled down the street en-masse. Insiders Tip - Walking backwards is heaps easier!
