a word of warning for those who believe that a fenced caravan park is a safe place to leave bits and pieces outside overnight, stayed at a terrific park here in adelaide on the weekend only to have 2 bikes stolen, both locked, other people we knew lost a good size esky and one poor female had her handbag with all the goodies stolen from inside her cabin, those theiving bast*###. my bike 3 months old and younger sons also new at xmas, from now on i will use a decent steel chain and lock for the bikes, and on the offenders if they get caught.

If I found the pricks who smashed my Hilux window and found my camera hidden deep in my clothes bag when in Darwin, id glady turn tourist operator and take them out west to see this wide open "deserted" country of ours.

Used to worry me no end having my Chescold 3way chained up to the drawbar of my Jayco. Wouldnt rest easy when I was more than 100M away from it. Could see some mongrel diving past and ripping the chain out of the back and driving off.

pauline and bill, the park is west beach, terrific park, great amenities and facilities for people of all ages, well looked after, the problem being is that the rear of the park on the beach side has 2 openings straight onto a public walk and bike way, they breeze in through here, grab what they can and back out again, there is no security at all at these points, if they lock the gates of a night it inconveniences the honest person, however a curfew in my opinion would suit where the gates are locked after a certain time, anyway i am much wiser now and will look up the locks that have been mentioned by other formites, regards, Adrian.

Must admit that I lock everything pichable when in a caravan park. Even the small gas bottle and 2 burner cooker gets a wire lock wound through it.
Kids bikes the same, if we go out or at night, locked to the van.
I've seen plenty of others locking fridges and other stuff up as well.
Pity but there it is, soft laws and judges makes for a yob element to whom being caught means nothing.
