There are numerous scenic walks around Dunedin
There are numerous scenic walks around Dunedin. Short tracks criss-cross Otago Peninsula, the Town Belt and Ross Creek; and there’s the attraction – or otherwise – of tackling Baldwin Street, the world’s steepest street.
Further afield, there are tracks near the Taieri River and Silverstream, half-day hikes along Dunedin’s dramatic skyline (the Pineapple, Leith Saddle and Mt Cargill Tracks), walks to mysterious places like Tunnel Beach, and serious hikes in the Silver Peaks.
Many of Dunedin’s iconic buildings - think First Church, The Municipal Chambers, Dunedin Railway Station - are found in and near The Octagon. This area is flat and best viewed on foot. Follow the heritage trails or get real value by joining a guided walk.
