Noel Powell OAM


Scarborough’s Noel Powell OAM spent his life following his mother’s advice: ‘you don’t want to live your life and not make a difference’. Mr Powell gave more than 40 years of service to the Peninsula community. That service was publicly recognised repeatedly throughout his life – including in 2015 when he was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) in the Queen’s birthday honours list, in 2006 when he was named Redcliffe Citizen of the Year and when he was named a Life member of the Redcliffe Leagues Club. Mr Powell was married to Judy for 54 years and they have two sons, Greg and Darren, and five grandchildren.

Greg said his father was extremely proud to be awarded an OAM for his service to the youth of Redcliffe through his work with the Redcliffe PCYC, during which he was instrumental in overseeing the much-needed expansion of facilities at Kippa-Ring.

During Mr Powell’s four decades of service to the community, he was a Justice of the Peace for 40 years; a member of Rotary for 27 years; chairman of the Redcliffe PCYC for a decade; and deputy chairman of Regional Development Australia Moreton Bay for seven years, as well as serving on the board of the Our Village Foundation, which was the precursor to Moreton Bay Region Industry and Tourism (MBRIT). Noel was Redcliffe PCYC Chairman for 10 years, which grew during that term to one of the largest in the state and had more than $2 million in building and infrastructure improvements.
