"Reilly doesn't know if she will visit Australia before the election - although "A Current Affair" and Today Tonight (and maybe even "The 7.30 Report") will be falling over themselves to get her on camera is she does."
"One of my funnier experiences in Darwin was when I was in the Miss Australia Awards," she (Gabrielle Reilly) said. "We were all dressed up and taken on a beautiful champagne, sunset hovercraft cruise. There was not a toilet on board and many of the girls on board were just busting to go after a glass or two of champagne. The hovercraft pulled up on a sandbank in the middle of nowhere and all you saw was a bunch of contestants running down the beach in formal wear to glamorously squat in one of the few areas with any scrub." (We were all worried about crocs grabbing us.)

Gabrielle is Honorary Chair of the US Military International Military Gala held at Kansas City's Kauffman Center for Performing Arts (compare to the Sydney Opera House.) The Gala is dedicated to welcoming International Military Officers from around the world to train at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas for one year. Former Officer's include Indonesia's President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, Singapore's Prime Minister and the King of Bahrain.
"International Military Officers and their families from over 90 countries become good friends after spending a year together trainng at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. These relationships have been repetitedly known to later avoid conflict, causing peace and stability globally. This is why I am such an avid supporter of the Command and General Staff College Foundation." Gabrielle Reilly
For the 2016 International Friendship Gala, super model and business owner Kathy Ireland made Gabrielle a welcome video to play at the Gala.
Gabrielle says "I’m Australian American and have grown up travelling the world including living in Papua New Guinea for three years. I’m somewhat of a cautious adventure traveler meaning I’ve been dog sledding in the Artic, have ridden camels in the Sahara Desert, a sampan (dingy boat) through the North Vietnam juggle, have been elephant riding in Asia, and swam with sting rays. The list goes on and on.
Life is exciting and I thrive on the unknown and grand ideas.
I also dedicate some of my interviews to human rights and national security issues.
On a much more personal note, I want to share with you my core values that influence all my decisions. When I was about 6 years old I woke in the night to a vision that shone brightly, consuming me; I had a vision that I would grow up to connect and unite world leaders, legends and influencers to help in any aspect of global stability, security and peace. I wanted to improve the human condition everywhere. I still get chills thinking of that moment that changed my life.
I was deeply influenced by the selfless service of Mother Theresa (and yes, I even played in a nuns habit,) Martin Luther King’s ability to move people for the greater good of mankind and Wonder Woman’s ability to put a nice wrapping on saving the world (good marketing.)
I’ve travelled to over 50 countries often staying with the locals in remote regions off the tourist tracks. After living in America for 19 years, I’ve been involved with some of the most influential people in the world. So the vision that engulfed me at age 6, was perhaps what one would label a “calling” or “destiny.”"

CEO and Founder The Gabrielle Reilly Weekly 2002-2010
After 9/11 Gabrielle was compelled to use her international experience growing up in Australia, Papua New Guinea and years collectively travelling to over 40 countries, to try to mitigate the hatred around the world of America. Born and raised in Australia Gabrielle became a US citizen in 2002. The premise that the more people hated America, the more terrorists would be recruited, therefore the more conflict would arise, drove Gabrielle’s interest in diplomacy.
Gabrielle parlayed her international following as a model and global correspondent and spent years talking on radio stations and newspapers around the world including the BBC, The Australian, The Sydney Morning Herald, The Bulletin, the ABC, on such hot issues as Abu Ghraib. The Gabrielle Reilly Weekly generated some tremendous traffic on the internet.
