Victoria Police have said they are aware of the event and will have a significant police presence in the area. 

The rally comes after the premier suddenly announced his resignation on Tuesday afternoon. 

“It’s not an easy job being the premier of our state – that’s not a complaint, that’s just a fact,” he said.

“It requires 100 per cent from you and your family. That is, of course, time limited and now is the time to step away.”
