The Story of Clifford James Hill


This story tells the tale of a local identity in our country town of Mathoura, in Southern NSW. Born in the 1930’s, Clifford James Hill, otherwise known by locals as “Cliff” or “Red gum” has had a very interesting and inspiring life.

From family history, to his birth, to working in the mid 1900’s in Mathoura the story offers insight as to how fellows such as himself have contributed to the growth of our local environment and industries.

Using interesting equipment and encountering unique wildlife, Cliff’s love for our town and bush is evident in how he has assisted to keep our environment growing, sustainable and as thriving as it is today.
