A map of the area is attached below for your convenience.
Preliminary event schedule:
- The Human Chain will start forming on Princes Bridge.
- The gathering will be divided on the bridge into two single files each moving down and heading west either side of the Yarra River.
- Upon reaching the pedestrian (Evan Walker) bridge, each line will turn onto the bridge and be heading towards each other.
- The lines will meet and connect with an almighty uproar.
- There is wheelchair access via the River Terrace with lift access at the Federation Square corner of Princes Bridge on Swanston Street.
- Depending on volunteer interest, marshals in yellow vests will be strategically placed to assist and coordinate movement.
The Human Chain moves toward Princes bridge to gather in preparation for speeches.
