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 equipped and beautifully decorated - especially loved the hand-made bed throw. The breakfast was delicious. The open fire was romantic and the owners could not have been more helpful and charming. We intend to return.

Room Tip: Australian Suite has a kitchenette.

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 the décor is exotic - as other guests have commented, it is like staying in a mini-museum. The hot and cold selections for breakfasts are delicious, as is the complimentary port. So very many thoughtful touches. Even a fire was set though we did not use it. Penny, whilst we did not meet her due to other matters, was incredibly helpful in email contact prior to our stay - she wanted everything to be right and it was except for a water issue. Thank you Penny and Jorg. Susan Taylor and Warren Hickson, Newport, NSW

Thank you for your lovely review, and while I was unable to meet you due to needing to travel interstate, I am really happy that you had a lovely time in Egypt. Hopefully I will be able to meet you in person on another visit. Warm regards, Penny

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 restocked the next day. The room is made up each morning.
The warm crackling fire, spa and a very comfortable king size bed were all very enjoyable.
You could not ask for better hosts than Penny and Jorg who are very helpful and accommodating in everyway, suggesting places to visit and eat. They prepare a delicious breakfast and deliver it with a smile each morning. I can highly recommend the pancakes with berries.....the best!
We will have no hesitation in recommending Gumtree on Gillies to our friends as a place to have a quiet and lovely time away from the busy lives we all live.
Thank you Penny and Jorg

We recently stayed at Gumtree on Gillies & found it an excellent spot. It was extremely well located in terms of getting around the tablelands.The accommodation was spotlessly clean & imaginative,private & secluded.There was an easily negotiated track that led directly from the room to Peterson creek-site of a lovely local walk.We were lucky enough to see platypus twice in this creek on the same day-at different spots.Penny & Jorg were excellent hosts.Breakfast was sumptuous. All in all ,we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

I recently had the opportunity to stay with Penny & Jorg in the "Australian Room"
Gum Tree on Gillies was very easy to find and I was met with a very warm welcome.
My room was everything that had been advertised and some.
Jorg makes a great breakfast also.
This B&B is very centrally located in the Tablelands and I was able to make many day trips whilst staying there.
Thank you Penny & Jorg for sharing your little piece of paradise and I will definitely be back!

Room Tip: If you are wanting to be away from the main house choose the Australian Room or Egyptian Room.

Very impressed, Penny and Jorge were excellent hosts, nothing was to much trouble, especially Penny helping us out with her local knowledge of places that we really wanted to see.Nice little touches like the port, chocs, soft drinks and local coffee.It was very relaxing in our spacious room and king sized bed. One little little negative was the hard backed chairs that were a little uncomfortable but we spent very little time in them as we spent most of the time exploring the tablelands. It is a nice central location for exploring.
