Atherton Blue Gum is high on Hallorans Hill and looks down on the Atherton township, which is nestled in an emerald valley. The mist enshrouded mountains, with tropical sunlight glistening on their exposed peaks in the morning, is a delight to behold. At close to 800 m's above sea level, the temperature is a pleasant relief from the coastal humidity.

Atherton Blue Gum also offers business travellers and those returning to Atherton for special occasions, an alternative accommodation option. A sparkling pool & spa includes a poolside pergola with guest BBQ facilities. This will enable guests to cook and relax at poolside, having the advantages of boutique accommodation and local knowledge from your hosts.
