Anti-vaxxers have gathered at a popular Melbourne dining strip to protest the state's Covid vaccination rules.  

Dozens of demonstrators lined Acland street's dining precinct at St Kilda in a bizarre sit-in picnic protest against 'vaccination segregation' on Saturday.

Organisers encouraged protesters via Telegram, to gather along the footpath beginning from the Barkly Street end side before indicating a march could proceed to Luna Park. 

'This is a peaceful picnic to highlight the segregation in our state,' said a post on the encrypted app.

The post also claimed the protest was for 'every day people who do not want to be outcast' for refusing the Covid-19 vaccination. 

An employee from a local gelato shop, who asked to remain anonymous, told Daily Mail Australia she was worried customers were avoiding the store because of the protesters.

'They're invading the space... I'm worried people who are vaccinated won't come in,' she said.
