Compared to their city counterparts, the Extinction Rebellion protest in Albury on Monday was far less disruptive, but carried the same message.
The small but passionate group of Border residents came together outside Environment Minister and Farrer MP Sussan Ley's office calling for a better climate policy from the federal government.
Melbourne protesters lay dead in the middle of the CBD, causing traffic chaos.
For the Border demonstrators, it was much more about conveying the climate emergency message.
Five women dressed in red, with their faces painted white, slowly made the journey along Kiewa Street to take part in the demonstration.
Donned, the "Red Rebels", XR Albury-Wodonga spokeswoman Jodie Farrugia said the demonstrators are a part of the XR group world-wide.
"The idea around them is to have a non-verbal way to represent the sorrow the sadness around the lack of climate action, but also the hope people have around the issue," she said.

"It is a way for people to reflect on what it is to be human, what it is to be alive, living within a natural world, and be part of an ecosystem that isn't currently being cared for for future generations.
"All of us that are concerned around climate change just want to be able to find a way to communicate it clearly to the community and also to our leaders and our government.
"The future is looking bleak unless we see some change globally, from every country, but certainly from Australia as a progressive first-world country.
"There are a lot of people living here that are just sick and tired with the lack of action, we are dragging our heels here."
The crowd of about 30 people lay on the ground during the demonstration with their bodies outlined in chalk on the pavement.
Boxes labelled 'Liberal's climate policy' were delivered to Sussan Ley's office as part of the demonstration.
The boxes which were filled with peanuts were emptied onto the pavement.
Ms Ley was in parliament during the protest.
"The Morrison Government already has a multi-faceted approach to reducing our impact on a changing climate," she said in response to the protest.
"This includes constant monitoring of our emissions reduction targets, investing in renewable energy, boosting recycling and cutting waste, the $2 billion Climate Solutions Fund and much more."
The group cleaned up outside Ms Ley's office before they left. Police were also at the protest.
