Up a Gumtree

Up a Gumtree is an Austrailian idiom.

It means to be in trouble or in a tricky situation.

The term was used in the foundation of the company Gumtree, which originally helped Australian travellers to get in touch and share advice and contacts.

Now it's a large commercial concern like EBay where goods are bought and sold and services offered.
