We had a very warm welcome and Jörg told us a lot how we could spent our time. The Africa Room impressed us very much. Bed, room and bathroom are big enough for more than a couple. Just a few steps through the garden and we can jump into the pool. The food path to the city, to the river... More

We spent 3 nights in the Moroccan Room and were very satisfied with our experience. Penny and Borg are very friendly and gracious hosts and took time to chat with us and ensure that our stay was pleasant. Our room was spacious and well equipped with luxury bathroom and King size bed. Our breakfast order was delivered to our room,... More

Thanks so much for taking the time to write a lovely review. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us... despite a visit from the spiders!!! Sorry about that - while most of our wildlife is cute and furry, every now and then we get a creepy crawly one (luckily harmless though). All part of living with... More

What a great place to stay! Jorg and Penny are perfect and relaxed host(ess). They gave me a lot of information of the places to visit. The more Jorg showed his enthusiasm the better the place to visit. Breakfast was very good, fresh juice and lovely fruit. The apartment (Africa) was spacious and had a private patio. I really enjoyed... More

We enjoyed our quiet stay at Gumtree on Gillies. The room was spacious and the bed was comfortable. The made-to-order breakfast was exceptional with amazing fresh-squeezed juice. We had a private patio that looked out onto trees and wildlife. The only negative comment I can make is that it was a bit difficult to climb in and out of the... More

How lucky we were to have been able to spend 5 nights at this gem of a B&B. Our room opened at the front to a fabulous avenue of gumtrees and the rear to a secluded yard. All the extras are part of the package and the open fires are a real bonus. Penny & Jorg are magnificent hosts and... More

The open fire place really makes this place stand out, it's very cosy during winter. The spa bath, port and kind size bed just top it off! We loved walking along the paddock each night in to the restaurants in town. They give you little torches to light the way along a grass track which leads to the swinging bridge,... More

Hi Liv and Dan, Great you had a good time at Gumtree B&B and enjoyed our 'adventurous nature walk' to town via our paddock and the suspension bridge. We do have tree kangaroos down there as well but they are a little more reclusive. Great photos, thanks! Hope we can welcome you another time. All the best Jorg and Penny More

If we had known the wonderful atmosphere, the magnificent landscapes and the amazing wildlife before, we surely would have stayed longer at Jörg & Penny's lovely B&B in Yungaburra, the heart of Atherton Tablelands! Gumtree on Gillies is perfectly located in Yungaburra, right next to Peterson Creek to go see the rare Platypus and Lumholz Tree Kangaroo. We spotted several... More

Although we did not stay at Gumtrees on Gillies, we did have a most enjoyable time at Penny and Jorg's other place - The Blue House in Yungaburra. It is walking distance from everything.

Thanks for your wonderful review of the Blue House... a 'stray review' on the Gumtree pages... ooops.... must set up its own tripadvisor page. The deck is indeed fabulous, I sit there myself occasionally ... after the work is done ..... and enjoy the tranquility. Glad you enjoyed you time up here. All the best Penny and Jorg More

Jorg and Penny exceptional hosts. My partner and I stayed in the Moroccan room, and were delighted from the start - a large spa bath, beautiful wood fire, complementary chocolates and port, and a delicious home-cooked breakfast. This was everything we could have asked for and more.
