Visitors to the Thames School of Mines, which is cared for by Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga, could be in to win some special prizes in a photo competition running over the holiday break.

From Boxing Day, Heritage New Zealand will run a ‘Picture Postcards’ series of Facebook posts celebrating some of the cool properties Heritage New Zealand cares for on behalf of all Kiwis.

Punters can drop a photo into any of the ‘Picture Postcards’ posts of them and their family and friends at one of Heritage New Zealand’s properties, including the Thames School of Mines, and go in the draw to win a copy of Landmarks - notable historic buildings of New Zealand by David McGill and Grant Sheehan.

A copy of the book will be up for grabs with each post, and people are encouraged to get their friends to vote for their photo. At the end of the series the best overall photo will win a special prize.

Photos can be of any of Heritage New Zealand’s properties, not just from the daily post. For more information on properties please visit
