Over 300 residents and students turned up to express their concerns about climate change in front of politicians' offices in Goulburn on Friday morning.
It was also to support the student strikes, where thousands of Australian school students are walking out of classrooms to demand action on climate change.
One of the speakers at the rally, Mhairi Fraser called it a "fantastic community effort."
"We started outside Angus Taylor's office to express our dismay at his inaction and hypocrisy and then we marched down to stand outside Wendy Tuckerman's office to protest the inaction by the NSW Government on renewables, as well as the species loss and habitat destruction occurring as a result of land clearing laws," Ms Fraser said.
"The momentum in our community for action on the climate emergency is growing. At the very least country people are becoming bolder in speaking up. Many of the young people will vote in a year. The politicians need to take note."
Though Mr Taylor was not in Goulburn on Friday, a delegation of people from Goulburn were going up to see him to present two petitions demanding action on climate change.

Trinity student Kate Easlea and Mulwaree High student Declan Wilkinson spoke at the rally.
Ms Easlea said as Australian youth, they are the country's future and they want action on climate change.
"Despite the government's attempts to water down the climate emergency, an increasing number of Australians are acknowledging that our extreme weather events, plant and animal extinction and the water shortage crisis is an emergency," she said.
Declan Wilkinson said the purpose of the strike was to show politicians that people are serious about climate change.
"We need radical action on climate change. It is clear that under the Liberals there is going to be no action unless we see a significant shift," he said.
"This crosses party lines, it is a human issue. It is something we all need to tackle together. Our generation really cares about this."
Ms Fraser said it came together as an organic event.
"There are so many solutions ready to go for the problems we have unleashed upon the Earth but humans are slow to change," she said.
"We don't have a lot of time to act. The IPCC says between 8-10 years.
"We are all paying down debt to this planet. We are at our current consumption rate, consuming the resources of close to three planets. We all have to change.
"We owe a debt of gratitude to young people across the world for stepping up in the face of intimidation."
