A commemorative monument to the author of gumnut babies 'Snuggle Pot & Cuddle Pie'.

May Gibbs (1877-1969) is one of Australia’s most treasured illustrators, artists and children’s book authors. Her bush fantasy world has captured the imaginations of Australians for over a century, creating a uniquely Australian folklore that holds a special place in the hearts of a nation.

May spent her childhood in this area around the 1880's and influenced many books with her famous gumnut babies.
