In June 2008, the beautiful and historic Murrulla Stud stewardship was passed on to Tim and Celie Nolan. Tim, son of the esteemed Studmaster Basil Nolan of Raheen Stud in Queensland, and Celie, a former veterinary nurse at Scone’s Vinery Stud, where she honed her skills under the guidance of Peter Orton and Tony Scott, brought their shared passion for the equine world to this renowned establishment.
During their early years as proprietors of Murrulla, Tim and Celie achieved remarkable milestones. They consistently presented formidable drafts at prominent sales across Australia. Their dedication and excellence were formally acknowledged in 2009 when they were honoured with the title of the best-presented draft at the William Inglis Sydney Classic Yearling Sale. Since then, their journey has been defined by unwavering dedication and a steadfast commitment to the continued success of Murrulla Stud.
