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...

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...

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

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.

We were definitely charmed by this delightfully unique B&B situated on the fringe of the equally delightful historic town of Yungaburra. We stayed in the Egyptian room which felt quite sumptuous and exotic, with many small individual touches adding to it's warmth and ambience. Not with standing an Egyptian pharaoh offering us port and choccies as we entered the room!...
