Three remarkable women shape a culture

Maria, Patricia and Mietta O’Donnell had a remarkable impact on Melbourne, Victoria and Australia.

They, with Mietta’s partner Tony Knox, stimulated significant conversations about the arts, culture, politics, the shape of our cities, what we eat and how we live.

They also inspired many others to make important contributions to our community and were catalysts for events and developments that have made Melbourne one of the world’s most liveable cities.  

They created a legacy which will be remembered and will ensure that what they valued will be supported in the future.
