The walk was one of dozens being held across the country on Sunday, showing support for the Indigenous Voice to Parliament.

More than 2,500 met in Ocean Grove before crossing the bridge as part of a National Walk for Yes movement.

Member for Corangamite Libby Coker was one of the organisers, saying it was great to see the bridge full of supporters.

“When I looked back (towards the bridge), there was still hundreds of people walking onto the bridge,” she said.

“It was amazing, momentum is building.

“It is time to give our First Nations people a voice in the constitution and to give them an advisory role.”

The referendum on the proposed advisory body will be held on October 14.
