Thomas Cawthron Legacy Self Guided Walking Tour

Numerous Nelson landmarks and institutions stand testament to the outstanding contribution of Nelson philanthropist Thomas Cawthron.

Following his death in 1915, Cawthron bequeathed the equivalent of more than $100 million in today's New Zealand dollars to establish and maintain a technical school, institute and museum to be called the Cawthron Institute, which remains a world-class research organisation in the heart of Nelson. Follow our map to stroll through the city connecting with his legacy.
