If you've ever visited Baldwin Street in Dunedin, New Zealand, you'll know there's something very special about it.

On a 19.3 degree slope, it's the steepest street in the world.

This fact has made it an unlikely tourist attraction, as people visit to take jarring photographs every year.

And if you get the angle just right, you can create a very jarring image.

The street also plays host to an annual charity sweet race, in which 75,000 red Jaffas are hurtled down the street for charity, as part of the Dunedin Cadbury Chocolate Festival.
