old how to get there

By Public Transport

View our Getting to the #LeardBlockade by public transport page.


We definitely suggest carpooling to the #LeardBlockade. If you are driving up, please put a call out and bring up some people who need a lift. If you need a lift we might be able to sort one for you.

Get in touch with camp to let us know the departure city and dates and we will let you know if we know anyone leaving nearby in the not too distant future.

Otherwise, look around on gumtree and make some new friends. Or get your friends to come along. Some of our most welcome visitors and interesting contributors to the campaign were those who had no idea what we were about until one of us jumped in their car and said “Hey! Let’s go fight them coal giants! Ragggh!”
