Nowra - car security

12:26:36 PM
I am planning a trip to Nowra soon and was wondering is there still concerns with car security at Thompsons Point car park.

Until the Bogan (Boganus Commodorii) is extinct in the Nowra area, there will always be concerns over car safety. Same goes in most car parks I'd say. Don't leave anything valuable in the car and you just run the same risk as everyone else.

I don't think it happens every day now, just once every few months.

i heard rumours that in the late ninties, a group of climbers hid and waited for vandals. to which they carried out a 'civilian's arrest' with a 'strong message' that the vandalism and theft would not be tolerated anymore.

any truth to these rumours?

For a while it seemed there were weekly break ins and as it happened some shire boys were thomos regulars at the time. There direct action stopped brek ins for some time.

Still happens. Friend had window smashed month or so ago and their was a post recently of a car break in at Tianjara.

I never leave anything visible in the car, leave glovebox open etc.

we used to leave the windows open. mind you it was a crappy car.

I am a nowra climber and have never left my car unlocked. I have left my full trad rack in the boot with a spare rope as well. I have climbed there for five years and have only ever heard of one break in(i was actually there that day though).

I wouldnt worry about it any more then I would worry about it at any other crag or place in the bush.

Note: im not claiming there hasnt been any other break ins over that period of time...just that I havent heard about any, ie the people i climb with havent been effected and I certainly havent.

Hi Rosco,
With a car like yours Ross, I wouldn't worry about breakins. But, if you had a real climbers car like an Outback, well, that'd be a different issue!

What about Point Perp these days. I'm planning a trip for mid July. How's that going to be for weather?

Car break-ins can happen anywhere. I was surprised to see about a dozen cars in a row with broken windows at the car park at Palm Beach in Sydney one summer. The car park was full (as always) and there seemed to be people wandering around everwhere. It didn't deter the scumbags though.
