Car break-ins at National Park

I was quite amazed, as we drove into the carpark at the Springbrook National Park, to see an official sign erected by the Parks Service warning of people breaking into cars to steal items. Pauline commented that, to warrant such a sign, it must be a common problem. This was soon confirmed. As we left our car, some other people came down the carpark, telling us and several others who had just arrived that they had just returned to their car and found the window smashed. Everyone hastily double checked that nothing was left in the cabins of our cars. Later, Pauline and I both wondered about a man we saw standing idly with a mobile phone near a large camper van, but not going anywhere and not appearing to be holding a conversation.

In general, theft from cars is not a common problem in Australia. This made me wonder if it might be more rife in areas more heavily frequented by tourists.
