May Gibbs’ Nutcote for High Tea and a Sketch and Scribble

Date(s) - 04/Dec/2022
11:30 am - 3:00 pm

May Gibbs' Nutcote
5 Wallaringa Ave - Neutral Bay , NSW 2089


May Gibbs’ 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, this will be our location for the 2022 SCBWI NSW end of year get together. 

Ticket cost includes entry, a tour of the house and a sumptuous high tea, plus the chance to spend the afternoon with SCBWI friends, catching up, sketching, scribbling and nibbling.


Normally $55 but as a special SCBWI treat we will subsidise the ticket price so they are $40.

We have limited capacity for this event, so it’s for SCBWI members only. If you’d like to join us, please don’t delay booking your ticket.

Hope to see you there!
