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.

May Gibbs’ Nutcote has a children’s room in the gallery section of the museum where they can dress up as the Big Bad Banksia man, Ragged Blossom or a Gumnut baby. There are also activities in this room such as colouring in. Children also enjoy playing in the Gardens, finding small sculptures and seeing our caterpillar hedge! Nutcote regularly runs programs in the school holidays with extra activities.
