Why drive when you can walk?

Let's be honest, there's a carpark right in front of the vista, but we can make it fun too! Dunedin is an amazing city and I had the honor of living there for 5 months when I studied at the University of Otago, an area filled with nature and views in walking distance.

The location on this adventure is direct to the Signal Hill Lookout carpark, but for an absolutely walkable hike to the lookout, it's simple: Make a day trip out of the Dunedin Botanic Garden then from the front gates, take a right up Opoho Road and eventually take a slight left up Signal Hill Road. From there, just follow the road to the top.

I found this hour walk to be a pretty cool way to experience the hilly lands of Dunedin. Though, a good portion of the walk are the neighborhood of flats, when you reach the last 20 minutes, the land opens up and the view begins to come in. Also, this is a pretty steady incline up and you may catch yourself out of breath at times. It's a great workout!
