Great place very spacious rooms (Australian room) friendly hosts wonderful breakfast lovely views and just a short work into town to the restaurants for dinner. You coudn't ask for anything better even the cat made you feel welcome and at home.

Room Tip: Australian room is the most secluded however i think all rooms would be great

We had a fabulous two-night stay in August. The Australian room was wonderful - far more space than we needed, comfy bed, huge spa bath and breakfasts served in our room. It was peaceful and secluded (but not too far from Yungaburra). Free local telephone calls and internet were a lovely touch.
If it wasn't so far from UK I would book us in for another couple of nights before Christmas.

Thank you for a great place to stay.

Ann and Andy

We really enjoyed our stay with Penny and Jorg, they were excellent hosts, nothing was too much trouble. The Egyptian room was very spacious, big spa and great open fireplace. Its an easy walk into town and a great base to explore the Tablelands from. We would recommend this to anyone.

We stayed in the Egyptian Room (every room has a different theme) of Gumtree on Gillies for 3 nights. When we arrived, we were absolutely surprised of the very spacious and nicely furnished room where our Egyptian butler was already awaiting us with port and chocolates. There is also a nice fireplace which we didn't use as we never felt cold in the evening. Penny and Jorg are great hosts and they always provide you with everything you need plus the service was almost like in a hotel which we really didn't expect in a B&B. The bed was made up every day, you always get new towels etc which we really appreciated.
Although Gumtree on Gillies is located a little bit outside of Yungaburra, you can easily walk to the town centre in approx. 15 minutes. The path leads along a nice little creek and if you are lucky, you can see a Platypus swimming in there.
Last but not least we would like to mention, that we forgot a jacket when we finally left. Penny and Jorg immediately contacted us and sent the jacket to our next hotel. Once again, great service!!
We would definitely go back there and can only recommend this place!

We have stayed at Gumtree's previously and loved it. This time we had heaps of friends and stayed at Penny and Jorgs Blue House in Yungaburra. Absolutely wonderful experience.
the house was all set up and very welcoming when we arrived and was so easy to live in for the 3 days we were all there. Walking distance to cafes and restuarants and the local pub. You've won us again guys. What a top spot and very affordable. I had better not praise it too much as we wont be able to get back in there. A Must stay. Charlie

Ideal base for touring the Atherton table mountains and surrounding areas. We stayed in the African room which was luxurious and ideal for our needs- spacious, spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated with lots of extras. Penny and Jorg were wonderful hosts providing a very pleasant breakfast on the patio and suggesting places to visit and eat in the locality. Penny also let us pick fresh oranges from the garden, quite a novelty for us English visitors. We only stayed one night but would love to have stayed longer had our schedule allowed. We don't normally write reviews but we had such a lovely stay that we felt compelled to put pen to paper. Henry and Helen
