  • 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.
  • A great place to visit with very friendly and passionate staffs, the house tour gives you a full story on the life of May Gibb, her inspirations, her struggles and how her brilliant works come about. No photos allowed in the house (for copyright reasons) and the house entry is only via the guided tour so please check before your visit, there is no parking around the house so best to come via public transport. To make a half day trip for it, arrive by train, hop off at the Milson Point train station, grab some brunch if necessary (Nutcote opens at 11am and the first house tour starts almost right away), takes a leisurely walk (around 1.6 km - 20 mins), arrive at Nutcote by 11am. After the visit (roughly around 1.5 hours), get some lunch around Neutral Bay Ferry Wharf (recommended an excellent and cheap Thai restaurant - Ta Ta Thai) and take a ferry back to Circular Quay. The suburb of Neutral Bay where the house is located is stunning so please allow some extra time to explore.
  • Must see if in sydney just below the harbour bridge south side but dont bring your van or car use public transport
  • A great day enjoying the creativity of May Gibb & the hospitality of the wonderful volunteers. Thank you.
  • Lovely little museum! Excellent guided tour, not very busy on a Sunday morning.
