This isn't really so much of a walk as a slow saunter, dawdle, shuffle, drag, lumber or a stumble. The rules are very simple, bring your boy/girlfriend, your mate, dog, cat, grandpa or your little zombies - the only condition is that you must be undead.

The route is a little different every year, but in 2011, the hungry hoardes departed Carlton Gardens and headed south on La Trobe St, to Exhibition St, then Bourke St Mall, Swanston St, across the bridge at Federation Square, finishing at Alexandra Gardens.

This walk takes a lot longer than half an hour to give time for shufflers to be ushered across the busy roads and of course for the alive to take photographs of this rare phenomenon.

In 2011, the Melbourne Zombie Shuffle attracted 10,000 zombies!

There's also a YouTube clip.
