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. The house itself is appealing and well appointed. We loved being able to sit on the verandah to soak up the peace and watch the birds... More

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.

Thank you, Jorg and Penny for helping my sight-impaired sister, enjoy her Christmas holiday @ Gumtree on Gillies. We stayed in the Moroccan Room and found it so beautiful. Penny is so happy-go-lucky, and made us feel comfortable, (nothing was "too-much-trouble".)
