Angelina Noble Centre
This centre is named in honour of Angelina Noble.
Angelina Noble (c.1879-1964) was born in Longreach, Queensland. She married James Noble in 1904, and together they worked as missionaries helping to found churches across Northern Australia. Angela was known particularly as a gifted linguist, fluent in at least five Aboriginal languages. Sometimes the only female missionary, her variety of roles included caring for the sick, teaching in the mission school, acting as baker and cook, and also herding cattle. Angela and James had six children. She survived James by 23 years, and died at Yarrabah, Queensland. As an indigenous Christian leader, her example continues to inspire women of all backgrounds today.
