The World’s Steepest Street

Introducing the world’s steepest street – “Baldwin Street”. It’s just a quiet residential suburb in Dunedin, NZ South island. But not so quiet in the month of July every year. The Cadbury Jaffa race is held there annually, releasing loads of chocolate candies down the slope for charity. An amazing sight and fun too. Park your ‪#‎campervan‬ elsewhere and walk up the slope to test your fitness.

New Zealand’s Art Deco City

Napier is ‘The place’ if Art in Architecture is your thing. Famous for its art deco in buildings of the 1930s. Situated at NZ North Island, Hawke’s Bay , this city was devastated by an earthquake in 1931 but it was rebuilt quickly while carefully preserving it’s architecture of the classics which still stands today.

Take a walking tour to soak into the era of the 1930s. Every February, the locals celebrate the Art Deco heritage by having a festival where vintage cars and bikes are paraded with people donning clothes of that 30’s era. Activities include outdoor jazz concerts, aerobatic flying displays, steam train rides and so on.

If you think only Singpore has a Marine Parade,  Napier has one too. A favourite place among the locals and visitors too . Walk by the coast, dine, cycle, stroll among flower gardens and if you’re lucky some vintage cars may just come by too.
