We have been moored at the Garden Point Moorings adjacent to downtown Brisbane since December 2011. In that time about 5 dinghies have been stolen from the dinghy dock, 3 in the past 2 weeks, including our own dinghy.

Cruisers should lock their dinghies when using the dinghy dock here. Some are taken by drunken joyriders and are eventually found, some are taken by organized thieves according to the local marine police.
