A wonderful stay the hosts were extremely welcoming right from the first phone call. Our room had ample privacy with lovely natural gardens and farm surrounds. For a relaxed overnight stay away from the big resorts this is the perfect spot. Just off the highway but far enough away to have a feeling of seclusion with no noise but close... More

We stayed at Gumtree on Gilles a couple of weekends ago, and absolutely loved it! We were made to feel very welcome, and our Egyptian room was super comfortable. Breakfast was delicious! It was also great being able to walk only a short distance into Yungaburra, especially at night with solar lights to guide you! It was finishing touches like... More

We stayed at Gumtree for four nights in the cute 'Egyptian Seduction' room and really enjoyed the experience. Jorg and Penny are very easy to get along with and Penny's delicious home made bircher muesli for breakfast provides plenty of energy for exploring the tablelands. Watching the Sarus Cranes and wallabies in the paddock out the back each morning made... More

Absolutely gorgeous hosts, lovely landscapes and very warm and friendly. We had a wonderful stay and the breakfast was scrumptious. If you want to escape from a busy lifestyle, then this is for you :)

Marvelous homemade breakfast, very friendly hosts, but the lodges need refurbishing. The garden is filled with wildlife, possums fight at night, cerluws hide below bushes and the willy wagtail greats you every time you arrive at your lodge. Good place to explore the tablelands, figtree and platypus spot are around the corner.

Our stay in the Moroccan room was very pleasant with a great fire place to handle the morning chill. You couldn't find a better place to be centrally located in the tablelands. Penny & Jorg are gracious and charming and made our stay a wonderful experience.

We decided to spend one night in the Tablelands from our holiday base in Port Douglas and chose Gumtree on Gillies because of the self-contained Australian Suite. We were delighted with our choice. The location is quiet - away from the highway. There is a great walk along the Creek to Yungaburra from the Cottage. The Room was spacious, well... More

We stayed for 2 nights in the "Egyptian Room", one of four room options, in July. The property is on acreage on the edge of town so it is rustic and quiet, yet convenient to the restaurants etc in nearby Yungaburra. Our host, Jorg, was welcoming and provided lots of local info. The accommodation is modern, spacious and conformable and... More

Gumtree on Gillies has it all - it's quiet, private and charming. We had two nights in the African room which was spacious, immaculately clean and tastefully decorated with lots of little quirks that go with the theme of the room. The extra touches like the complimentary port, chocolates, soft drink, breakfast cereal etc. were very impressive and all are... More
