Isabel Alice Green O.B.E. An amazing woman ahead of her time. Brought up in a family of high-achieving men, Belle rose against adversity to be one of the most outstanding women in Australia. With great determination and organisational skills she also had exceptional vision coupled with groundbreaking ideas. Against a backdrop of 2 World Wars and The Great Depression she went from the lone pioneer woman amongst 600 men in the outback to hosting Royalty in Melbourne and Canberra's great halls. Throughout her life Belle showed great compassion for others and was rightly rewarded an O.B.E. for her community services.
