Hundreds of anti-vaccination protesters have defied social-distancing measures at rallies across Australia.

Protesters claiming the COVID-19 pandemic was a "scam" gathered at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Melbourne today, carrying declaring they were against vaccines and 5G technology.

Their placards stated "5G = communism", "COVID 1984" and "our ignorance is their strength".

They booed police - clad in gloves and face masks - who warned the crowd they were breaching social-distancing rules designed to slow the spread of coronavirus.

In a statement, police said those found in breach of COVID-19 directions faced fines of $1652 each.

In Sydney, up to 500 protesters voiced conspiracy theories regarding not only vaccination, but also 5G telecommunication networks, fluoride and large pharmaceutical corporations.

The group convened at Hyde Park in the CBD before holding a singalong of anti-vaccination songs and walking to NSW Parliament House.

They chanted "freedom of choice" and "my body, my choice" on the march, with some attempting to raise the spectre of a "new world order".

The walk passed without incident or police intervention.

Similar protests were also planned for Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Canberra and Hobart.

When asked about the protests, Victoria's Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton said "there's no message that can get through to people who have no belief in science".

"There's probably no reaching them," he earlier told reporters.

At least we know they're Right Wing nuts.

Covid 1984, Plandemic/Scamdemic sure is an absolute scam. Anyone that still thinks for themselves - that doesnt need an official or expert or authority figure to tell them what to think - can see this. It is obvious. The entire story or interpretation of events had so many holes in it right from the beginning - when there was such an extremely over-hyped media fear campaign. It felt much like 9-11 again.
I wont be having any rushed experimental RNA vaccine for "Covid-19", which - it is finally "officially" recognised (by WHO and CDC (both USA and both full of conflict-of-interest funding) as being no more deadly than flu. This was noted by many doctors very early on but ignored and supressed by news-media.
The whole world is already deeply in debt to the same international bankers once again - it is just like a war after all. Death and destruction but billonaires benefit from it.

Rothschild is behind this, again.
