Victoria Police gave nine fines and arrested four people in the south-east of Melbourne for an anti-lockdown rally.
Hundreds of demonstrators stormed the Dandenong streets on Wednesday evening, triggering a tense stand-off with police.
Four men have been detained at the George Andrews Reserve for refusing to provide identification after following orders from the Chief Health Officer.
Since then a 28-year-old man has been charged with attacking and resisting officers, and a 19-year-old has been charged with using threatening terms.
Two more men, aged 22 and 43, were charged for not disclosing their name and address and violating the orders of the CHO.
