Overview 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.

    I’m trying to contact Jasmine Wills for advice on my following concern.

    I am enrolled in the convoy and understand that you are the logistics organiser for the event.

    I have a question that relates to a concern I, and others I have spoken to, have about what to expect at each of the stopping points along the way.

    My wife and I intend to pitch and tent for the night at each town but if there are likely to be two to three hundred vehicles arriving at the same time all looking for accommodation with perhaps over half that number looking for a camp site we envisage that official camping areas will be overwhelmed.

    As it is not possible for everyone to book a camping space we foresee great confusing at each stopping points unless the convoy organisers have, or intend to, arranged with the local councils to make available alternative sites with facilities (showers and toilets) where tents can be erected, for example at showgrounds.
    Or will we have to drive on to nearby towns until we find anew approved campsite?

    Are you able to give us some indication of what you have arranged or what to expect.

    This is wonderful of you to organize, and we’ll help any way we can, perhaps even be able to drive along some of the way. Looking for ways to raise funds right now, as that’s always needed. Much love and gratitude for getting it going. Steve Biddulph

    How many of these cars will be powered by fossil fuels?

    Better to walk it, you might just make it for the Grand Opening.

    My Grandchildren, those here now, may live till the year 2100, Their future children may live to the year 2140. The massive problems that the government dismiss as far into the future i.e. 2100 are actually in your grandchild’s lifetime. Do something about that..now.
