Born in England, Gill never knew his father. He immigrated to Australia with his actress wife Carole Ann Gill.
Gill was a recurring cast member in the women's prison drama Prisoner as Det. Insp. Jack Grace, a regular cast member as Sgt. Jack Carruthers in The Flying Doctors and played another recurring role in Blue Heelers as Superintendent Clive Adamson. He appeared in a guest role on Neighbours.
Gill appeared in Crocodile Dundee as the leader of a group of kangaroo shooters whom Dundee (Paul Hogan) fights in the Walkabout Creek Hotel bar, and later uses a dead kangaroo as a cover to shoot at the shooters and scare them. He portrayed Santa Claus on Australian TV's annual Carols by Candlelight for 27 years (in later years alongside well-known children's entertainers Hi-5 and Australian TV icon Humphrey B. Bear).
