Do You Live in One Of Queensland Car Theft Hotspots?

A number of Brisbane suburbs have been named on the Top Ten list for worst suburbs for car theft in Queensland. 

So if you live in Red Hill, Inala, Sunnybank Hills, Zillmere, Oxley, Fortitude Valley or Caboolture make sure you lock up. 

Southport led the list with 2976 claims through RACQ Insurance in the past three years. 

“This is not a list you want to feature on and it’s shocking to see most thefts coming from the south east,” RACQ spokesperson Kirsty Clinton said.

“Unfortunately for those living in Southport – it’s the worst place for car theft in Queensland.

“If you own a Toyota Landcruiser, Ford Falcon or Toyota Corolla you’re also at risk, with these models topping the wish list for thieves.”

The RACQ also released the 11th - 20th ranked suburbs with a number of Brisbane suburbs also featuring in the extended list. 

  1. Ipswich
  2. Durack
  3. Molendinar
  4. Logan Central
  5. Maryborough
  6. Buderim
  7. Tanah Merah
  8. Greenslopes
  9. Loganholme
  10. Balmoral
