The Shrine of Remembrance, the march, and the AFL game between Collingwood and Essendon will be protected with barriers, and by uniformed and plainclothes police to prevent any terror attacks.

Victoria Police acting Commander Peter O'Neill would not release exact police numbers or detailed security plans for the day but said the force is prepared.

"Vehicle-borne attacks and lone wolf attacks are all with us these days" Mr O'Neill said on Friday.

He was referring to an incident overnight in France, where a policeman was killed and two others were wounded in a shooting claimed by Islamic State.

Security at Victoria's major events remain heightened two years after a terror threat was made against the dawn service and just months after a man drove into pedestrians in Bourke Street Mall.

People travelling into the city for the AFL game at the MCG on Anzac Day have been urged to take public transport.

The nation's terror threat level remains "probable".
