Here is a list of frequently asked questions (FAQs) about the convoy. As this is a fast-moving campaign, the list will grow as further information becomes available, so check in from time to time to get the latest updates.
When will the Stop Adani Convoy start?
The convoy will depart Hobart between 17-21 April 2019.
Who can go on the car convoy?
Any person with a vehicle is welcome, along with their passengers. You will need to be in good health and responsible for any medical problems that may arise.
What do I need to commit to by being on the convoy?
You will be asked to agree to a code of conduct for the convoy, prior to taking part. This includes acting lawfully and peacefully at all times and accepting directives from organisers.
What is the route?
The route is still being finalised but the draft route currently includes Hobart, Melbourne, Albury, Sydney, Byron Bay, Brisbane, Melany, Rockhampton Airlie Beach and Clermont. The convoy will conclude with a public rally outside Parliament House Canberra.
How long will the convoy take?
We plan to take from 19-23 days to drive from Hobart to Clermont. We are allowing at least 3 days for travel from Clermont to Canberra.
Will I need to be self-sufficient?
Yes, you will need to pay for your own petrol, car maintenance, vehicle insurance, meals and accommodation along the way.
How do I join the car convoy?
There will be designated locations along the published route where you can join the convoy. However, participants are welcome to join or leave the convoy at any point.
Is the convoy legal?
The convoy is a completely legal event and we ask that participants act lawfully at all times.
Won’t it take ages to get to Clermont with a large convoy of vehicles?
We won’t be driving in close convoy and drivers will be free to make their own way to each stop along the route, in their own time. We will announce designated times and venues for events along the way, including estimated travel times between locations, so that drivers can plan to meet at any or all of these locations, as they wish. You may encounter fellow convoy participants along the road and that will be a bonus!
I can’t go on the car convoy. How else can I support this convoy and campaign?
Come along to one of the many public events that will be taking place along the route.
- Make a tax-deductible donation to help organise this massive event.
- Share our web page and social media posts with friends and online networks.
Do I need to formally sign up to join the convoy?
The first step is to express your interest in joining the Stop Adani Convoy at our website if you haven’t already. As soon as we have more information about convoy logistics, we will be in touch with updates and provide a formal registration process. We will be asking everyone who takes part in the convoy to agree to a code of conduct for the event, to ensure the convoy is safe, sustainable and successful.
Can I bring my family?
Yes but adults must ensure that children are adequately supervised at all times.
My local group is planning to participate - what do we do?
Each member of your local group will need to sign up at our Stop Adani Convoy website.
Will I be able to carpool?
We will not be organising carpooling but individuals are free to make whatever arrangements they wish, as long as it is in keeping with the code of conduct for the event.
