A great view is provided from signal hill, but no information is provided, and it has little parking. The road is also very narrow for access

Journey to the top of Signal Hill on a clear day gives fantastic views over the city of Dunedin and the Otago Peninsula. Well worth the visit.

Definitely tick this off your list if you're in Dunedin! There are a few walking/mountain bike tracks to get up and down to the lookout point which are really beautiful to walk through. Alternatively you can drive up to the top. I used trailforks app...More

This is a great place to look out over Dunedin and the ocean. It is not far from town, and has a good viewing platform and some statues. It was very windy, but worth it.

Not to be missed, the views from here are amazing you can see for miles. There are also mountain bike trails for the more intrepid visitor.

Well worth the effort to drive up there. Navman had difficulty so used road map. View was outstanding with great view of Dunedin and Otago Peninsular.

Lovely views of Dunedin from this monument that marks the first European settlement of the area. Plenty of parking at the top and a good road although you could take a long walk if you felt energetic

The big easy track winds you up the hill starting at Logan Park High School (Be aware that the car park is the schools and you are not allowed to park there during school hours). The paths are well defined and took about 50 mins...More
