  • Beautifully maintained, staffed by volunteers, this is a place to visit if you love historic childrens' literature, lovely harbour views or art. May Gibbs' story is told via a video, narrated by May herself. The ferry ride here and back is worth doing too. Welcome refreshments are also on sale at the tearooms. What a gem!
  • Nutcote is the beautiful harbourside home of May Gibbs (1877-1969), Australia’s foremost children’s author and illustrator and best known today for her iconic story The Complete Adventures of Snugglepot & Cuddlepie. Located in Sydney’s Neutral Bay and now a house museum surrounded by delightful gardens, May Gibbs’ Nutcote is an enchanting venue to be enjoyed by everyone, all year round.
  • Those fond of authors and children books will find this place nostalgic, and full of anecdote. The guide was a real good fellow.
  • I wish I'd had longer here. The gardens and views of the harbour are sensational! The little cafe looked inviting and there's a gift shop too. Volunteers are friendly even looking up a ferry timetable for me. I highly recommend a visit if you're a fan and even if you're not, you might be after you visit. Tour costs $10 and you get shown around the house and can see a 20 minute video.
  • Absolutely charming! Fun for all ages. A wonderfully unique way to see what life and work must have been like for artist May Gibbs.
