We went up here on a day that was drizzling and it was in the clouds and you can see nothing, but then the next day we went up in the sun and it was an amazing view. The wind makes it feel chilly up there. Not really much up there other than the view. The road is fairly steep... More

Perfect place to orient yourself when visiting Dunedin. We visited on a warm and windless day but usually I would suggest you dress for wind.

Nice drive up Signal Hill Road to the top for a great view of Dunedin. Well worth the trip and it was on the last day we were there - also best weather that day!

Easy drive to the top where you will be greeted with great views. I saw the sunset at Dunedin from this point and it was amazing! Definitely should check this out when at Dunedin.

Worth making the effort to get to the top but not by walking. Wonderful views when you get to the top but nothing else.

We visited Signal Hill on a cold, windy and rainy morning, still the view was fantastic. I would love to go there again on a nice clear day.

Great place to have an overview of the city, also great to visit at night where you can appreciate the night lights.

I visited here in December with a few friends; we actually ended up coming back later with some food and watched the sun go down. The views are incredible and definitely worth the drive, cycle, walk, or however you can get yourself up to see it. If you head up for the evening I would recommend a few layers as... More

Do yourself a favor and see this. The views are stunning, the land is beautiful. Every turn, you will want to stop and take a picture as every one is prettier than the last.

A great place to see all of Dunedin and a good part of the peninsula. Stop here first to see where you will go, and get a feel for the area. Or stop here last to see where you've been. Both are great!
