We stayed in the African room which was spacious with a comfortable bed. Our hosts were friendly and obliging. Breakfast was above par with a delicious fruit platter, croissants and muffins to choose from. Great base for local walks in the area.

Gumtree on Gillies is different and a breath of fresh air in Australian country towns that can provide a lot of ordinary accommodations. Gumtree is well off the road so it is very quiet. This is a big plus as so many hotels seemed to be located on major roads with trucks and cars going by at all hours. The... More

Thanks for your praise. The Egyptian room is indeed special... with 'Africa' and 'Morocco' being equally exotic.... and the Australian room for a more local flair. Great you enjoyed our breakfast too !!! We try to make a difference. Sorry our WiFi doesn't reach all the way up there, the downside of being on a large rural property. But as... More

We stayed ib the Egyptians room and it had everything we require with a few extra things that were inclusive that were appreciated. The hosts were great and could nt have been more helpful. What do you really want me to say to make up the compulsory 200 words?!

It's a bed and breakfast set amongst a large rural property a short 1km drive outside of town. It's also walkable via some very scenic rural paths. The hosts are extremely friendly.

Stayed for three nights in the Morrocan room. Great location - just outside Yungaburra so nice and quiet but convenient for the village. Comfy bed, nice spa and delicious breakfasts. The big garden gives opportunity for walks and birdwatching. Only complaint was the weather - but even the best B&B hosts can't control that!!!!

A lovely find. Peaceful, tranquil and relaxing. Our Moroccan room was beautiful and the bed was to die for. The generous spar bath was inviting and great for unwinding.
