Function Hire Information

We welcome the opportunity to assist you with your special occasion at May Gibbs’ Nutcote, the former home and Gardens of May Gibbs, creator of the Australian classic children’s story, The Complete Adventures of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie. May Gibbs’ Nutcote has been faithfully restored to the period of the 1920s and early 1930s and is listed on the Register of the National Estate. Built in 1925 by noted architect BJ Waterhouse, and nestled on the shores of Sydney harbour at Neutral Bay, May Gibbs’ Nutcote provides an ideal and intimate setting for your wedding or special private function. The property, with its rare period house, formal and native gardens and lawns and stunning harbour views, provides excellent photographic opportunities. Today, May Gibbs’ home and Gardens are managed by a charity, the Nutcote Trust, in partnership with North Sydney Council. As part of this agreement we ask all our visitors to respect this important heritage property – the House, Gardens and facilities – and ensure that children are carefully supervised.

Fees are applicable Monday to Saturday between the hours of 9am-5pm. Sundays incur double rates. Outside the hours of 9 am-5 pm, double rates apply.
