Baldwin Street

Baldwin Street is located in Dunedin and is the world's steepest residential street.

Guinness officially recognizes Baldwin Street as the world's steepest street at a 35% grade.

In February the town holds the Baldwin Street Gutbuster Event.  This involves running from the base of the street to the top and back again. 

In July the Cadbury Factory holds a charity event.  They roll over 30,000 Jaffas(candy) down the hill.  Each Jaffa is sponsored by one person and the candy is numbered.  The person sponsoring the first Jaffa down the hill wins prizes and then the funds go to charity.
