Clay and Erin, along with their family, made the decision to move to Bathurst in search of a peaceful change of scenery. Little did they know that they would stumble upon a truly remarkable property that would capture their hearts.

Nestled on a sprawling 3000-acre farm, their property boasts a diverse landscape that ranges from the picturesque Crete flats to hills that rise 1000 metres above sea level. The breathtaking views overlooking Bathurst serve as a constant reminder of the beauty that surrounds them.

But it’s not just the natural beauty that makes this property special. It holds a rich history tied to the gold rush that swept through Bathurst in 1851. Even to this day, remnants of that era can be found in the form of open cut gold mines on the property.

The legacy of Herbert Stanley Williams, and his wife Poppy, who purchased Oakhill in 1948 lives on. They were known for breeding superfine Marino wool sheep and were not only accomplished horsemen and stockmen but also ran a local business that included a general store and butchers in town.

From 1982 to 2019, Raymond Herbert Williams took the reins and operated the property alongside his wife Mary. Ray, a skilled stockman, and Mary a qualified wool claser managed the day-to-day operations. The farm continued its tradition of breeding superfine Marino wool, maintaining the legacy established by Herbert and Stanley.

In 2021 Clay and Erin had the incredible opportunity to acquire this beautiful property. Building upon its rich heritage, they introduced the breeding of Aussie white sheep alongside the superfine Marino wool. Additionally, they are excited to announce the opening of an ecotourism glasshouse cabin in December 2023. This endeavor aims to provide guests with an immersive experience, allowing them to witness the beauty and history of the property firsthand.

Clay and Erin are passionate about sharing the wonders of their land with visitors, inviting them to appreciate its natural beauty and historical significance. They believe that this unique property holds a special magic that deserves to be shared with others.


Australia has a rich history and heritage that spans tens of thousands of years. Here is a brief overview of
Australia’s history and its diverse cultural heritage:

Indigenous History: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have inhabited the Australian continent for over 65,000 years, with a deep connection to the land and a rich cultural heritage. They have diverse languages, art forms, and spiritual beliefs that have been passed down through generations.

European Settlement: European exploration and colonisation of Australia began in the late 18th century. In 1770, Captain James Cook claimed the eastern coast of Australia for the British Crown. The arrival of the First Fleet in 1788 marked the establishment of a penal colony in New South Wales, primarily for convicts from Britain.

Colonial Expansion: Throughout the 19th century, British
colonies were established across Australia, including Tasmania, South Australia, Western Australia, Victoria, and Queensland. These colonies experienced rapid growth through immigration, exploration, and the development of industries such as mining, agriculture, and trade.

Gold Rush: The discovery of gold in the mid-19th century attracted thousands of migrants from around the world, including Europe, North America, and Asia. The gold rushes had a significant impact on the growth and development of Australia, leading to the establishment of new towns and the diversification of the economy.

Federation and Independence: On January 1, 1901, the six Australian colonies federated to form the Commonwealth, an independent nation within the British Empire. Over the following decades, Australia gradually gained more autonomy and, in 1942, the Statute of Westminster recognized Australia’s legislative independence.

Cultural Diversity: Australia has embraced multiculturalism,
with successive waves of migration contributing to
its diverse cultural fabric. People from various backgrounds,
including Indigenous, European, Asian, African,
and Middle Eastern, have made significant contributions
to Australia’s arts, cuisine, traditions, and societal values.

Modern Australia: In recent decades, Australia has grown into a thriving and developed nation. It is known for its democratic governance, high living standards, and diverse landscapes. Australia continues to celebrate and preserve its Indigenous heritage while embracing multiculturalism and fostering a sense of national

Australia’s history and heritage are showcased through its national museums, heritage sites, Indigenous cultural centers, festivals, and ongoing efforts to acknowledge and reconcile with its Indigenous past. The country’s historical sites, landmarks, and cultural events provide a glimpse into its fascinating journey from ancient Indigenous cultures to a modern and multicultural society.
