Signal Hill Tours

2 Reviews
Signal Hill
On a sunny day, you’ll find the best view in all of Dunedin is from the top of Signal Hill. This 1,289-foot forested promontory rises high above Dunedin Harbor, and offers sweeping views of the blue Pacific and green of the surrounding hills. On clear summer days you can find locals and visitors enjoying the uphill stroll to the summit, and mountain bikers whirring down the numerous trails that weave their way through the woods.

While walking maximizes the hill’s beauty, there’s also a road that winds its way up to the scenic reward at the top.  Not far from the Signal Hill summit, a large memorial commemorates New Zealand’s 100th anniversary that took place in 1940, and two bronze statues on the side of the memorial are an ode to the original Scottish settlers who founded the waterfront town. 

Practical Info

Signal Hill is approximately 1.5 miles outside of the Dunedin City Center. There is no admission to the summit or walking trails, and even on fine, sunny days, the top can still have a brisk wind that warrants bringing jacket.  
Address: Signal Hill, Dunedin, New Zealand
