Registration and Itinerary

Overview

Our plans are well advanced for this public showdown with the coal mining industry and its political backers. In the run-up to the federal election, the global mining giant looks set to start its colossal Carmichael coal mine in central Queensland.

Please now confirm your participation and officially register to join the convoy via the button below.

 

 

We look forward to you joining us. Almost 2000 people have inquired about joining the convoy.  It is a community commitment – an act of defiance for the future of our planet.  A peaceful protest against Gautam Adani’s mine.

We will depart from Hobart on April 17, sailing on the Spirit of Tasmania that evening.  We will pick up convoy participants at designated locations along the way, including Hobart, Melbourne, Albury, Sydney, Coffs Harbour, Mullumbimby, Brisbane, Yeppoon, Airlie Beach, Mackay, the Galilee Basin and Canberra.  We will be holding rallies in these places along the way.

*PLEASE BE AWARE:
The Stop Adani Convoy has been scheduled although the mine has no final go-ahead and despite there being no date set for the federal election. The convoy’s aim is to keep Adani and climate change on voters’ minds as they go to the ballot box. May the next parliament move the nation out of extracting and burning fossil fuels! Our plans are strong and based on the best information available, but there is a chance the schedule could change. Bob Brown.

    Hello Sue Goodrick. You’re in luck, the convoy doesn’t start until mid-April. Hopefully, this means you’ll be joining us! Thanks. – Manderlee, BBF Staff

    Hello Mark Waite. Unfortunately, we will not be able to visit Noosa. We know there is a great community of supporters there, and we are hoping you will all still be able to join us on the convoy or at convoy events near Noosa. Thanks – Manderlee, BBF Staff

    Hello Kate Wilkins. If you have registered for the convoy you would have received a link to join our Facebook group for participants in the convoy. Here you will be able to connect and build relationships with the other convoy attendees including artists and musicians. We do have plans to involve other creatives during the convoy, but these details are not yet able to be confirmed or publicised. We will release more information closer to the convoy start date. – Manderlee, BBF Staff

    Hi Sue Goodrick. Yes, everyone involved in the convoy will be invited to purchase materials to help identify the convoy. Car flags and stickers will be available for purchase closer to the convoy leave date. Keep an eye out for an email announcing when these materials are available. No, we are not booking campgrounds etc. for convoy participants. Accommodation needs to be entirely self-organised. If you have registered you are able to join our Facebook group for convoy participants where you can organise different things together. – Manderlee, BBF Staff

    I will be walking for MS 1st April from Springwood to Cairns along the Castlereagh Highway. Probably the best route for u guys to take as less traffic and shorter route. If u go that way I’ll give u a wave as you go past and if any of you want to act as a support driver for a couple of days you are more than welcome.

    This doesn’t appear to be the place to ask questions…. Does anyone know where to do that?

    Have you allowed for the nightmare traffic along the Princes Highway at Easter,? It is far worse than Christmas………You can reasonably expect to add 50% to travel times!!!! I am keen to go to the Galilee Basin to stop Adani…..but. your timing is appalling for drivers!!!

    Perhaps the route could take in Noosa (not so far from Maleny) and thereby build on the visit of the Sea Shepherd’s Steve Irwin “Stop Adani” visit to Noosa in July 2018 (see: https://www.sunshinecoastdaily.com.au/photos/sea-shepherds-steve-irwin-docks-at-noosa/67770/#/0). It could also be a useful reminder to all that Noosa Shire is also a UNESCO Biosphere.
