“A real place of tranquility”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2012

One of the best place regarding recovery during our journey through Australia in May 2012. We did really enjoy the authentic and spacious room ( African Elegance ) and of course the particularly service and breakfast - especially the handmade Hamburger and Pancake of Joerg and Penny :-).
It´s a good place to start day trips into the Tablelands. You´ll really enjoy it!

During the month we spent touring Northern Australia, we liked this accommodation best. We particularly appreciated the secluded location, the stylish Australian room, the breakfast being brought to our room and the personal service offered by Penny and Jorg. We also enjoyed visiting the very varied attractions of the Atherton Tablelands, Nick's Restaurant in Yungaburra (where we celebrated our 42nd wedding anniversary) and the walk along the creek, where we were lucky enough to spot a platypus. Our advice: it's worth staying here more than one night to fully relax and take in the beauty of the region.

Hello,
Sometimes we forget to stop and treat ourselves to a sanctury of spoiling and a battery re-charge. We all need to listen to our inner voice and stop to "smell the roses" , otherwise life can and will become boring.
Gumtree on Gillies is nestled amdist the beauty of fruit trees, chooks roaming freely, peacful paddocks of lush green and hidden treasures of an old farm barn resides decoratively themed rooms full of indukgence and relaxation. The hosts were welcoming, discreet and passionate about providing a professional and luxurious weekend away for my partner and myself.
You tend to forget life exists beyond the tree lined driveway of beautiful silvered bark trees and the tranquility of being away and sharing good times.
This place comes highly recommeneded to anyone wishing to refuel their soul and enjoy the good things in life that we all work hard to achieve. Thank you, we will definalely be back.

Lovely location, charming hosts, delicious breakfasts with fantastic freshly squeezed tropical fruit juice and large, well equipped room. The port and chocolates were a delightful touch.

We thought Yungaburra was full of character (don't miss out on a amazing pizza at Nicks) and we even saw, at Penny's suggestion, a platypus! It was an easy and enjoyable walk into the town.

We shall take treasured memories with us back to England.

Room Tip: We stayed in 'African nights', which was great, but cannot comment on the other rooms.

Rarely in a lifetime of work, family pressures does one get to just get away for a life changing weekend. We had such a weekend at Gumtrees and it was magical. The seclusion, room theme, everything was perfect for a most wonderful 20th Anninversary. The local Restaurants were superb and we were expertly advised by Penny our host. The ideallic location was just superb and we will be looking to coming back in the winter to take advantage of the open fireplaces, whilst sipping on good quality port. We had wonderful breakfasts with great coffee and home spun juice, this was the perfect start to our day of adventuring the Tablelands. As a B+B, this leaves the others in their wake. Magnificent.

Gumtree on Gillies - you've got it all. Beautiful rooms, delicious breakfast, attentive, charming hosts and serene surroundings. Our Egyptian room was so comfortable and we were wishing it was cold so we could enjoy the open fire.The small but thoughtful touches like chocolates, complimentry soft drinks, port, coffee to brew made all the difference between staying at an ordinary motel and Gumtrees.We felt so relaxed and it was hard to come back to the real world. We certainly recommed Gumtrees for your next getaway and we intend to go back next year and try another room destination. Well done penny and Jorg

Peaceful, scenic and very comfortable--this little treasure can do wonders to make your holiday special. The hosts--Jorg and Penny--are very thoughtful and generous. From whipping up a lovely, customosed breakfast every morning to lending you thier BBQ set to spice up a chilly evening, they do it all. The farmland and the brook surrounding the property is charming. The rooms are comfortable and the Yungaburra village has tons of character! Our young kids enjoyed the various animals--from chicken to cows in the meadows to the occassional wallabys that made appearances around the property--to the hilt. All in all, a wonderful holiday for families.
