The 28-year-old Adelaide man had been holidaying in Prasat, near Surin in northeastern Thailand for two months. He was attacked on March 17 by people on motorbikes, who slashed him in the arms and head with a homemade machete.
A spokesman for the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade said on Monday that Thai police had arrested one person and issued two warrants in relation to Mr Oake's death, The Sydney Morning Herald reported.
"The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade continues to provide all necessary consular assistance to the man's family," the spokesman said.
Mr Oake was cremated in Prasat on Friday in a traditional Buddhist ceremony attended by his six-month pregnant girlfriend, Som and his Adelaide family.
