Atherton Blue Gum B&B breakfast view

Atherton Blue Gum B&B is a home-away-from home. Spacious, clean, rustic rooms makes it a great place to base yourself. Wake to a chorus of native bird life and enjoy breakfast served on the upper deck. The views are magnificent, looking down on 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.

Atherton Blue Gum B&B caters for singles, couples & small groups who are travelling & exploring this beautiful part of the world. Atherton Blue Gum also offers business travellers and those returning to Atherton for special occasions, an alternative accommodation option. A sparkling pool & spa, (heated), 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. All rooms have a private ensuite, satellite "Austar" TV and entrance, it is a very comfortable B&B - Atherton Blue Gum B&B is not a "Retreat".
