Call Out for Volunteer Board Members – May Gibbs Nutcote


May Gibbs’ Nutcote was the harbourside home of May Gibbs (1877 – 1969), one of Australia’s foremost children’s authors and illustrators. She is best known today as the author of “The Complete Adventures of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie”. After being saved from demolition by the public and North Sydney Council, the house has become a museum to honour the life and legacy of May Gibbs.

Nutcote is seeking volunteers to join its board and is especially interested in applicants with experience in the fields of children’s education, marketing and finance, although those with other experience are encouraged to apply. Board membership of Nutcote is a very hands-on position which is rewarded by the great company of fellow volunteers and the joy of being in contact with the work of May Gibbs.

Applicants should address any enquiries and send a brief outline of their experience to:
