Queenstown: Crime

The Adventure City

Queenstown Crime

Queenstown is a generally safe destination for travellers. There has been some recent debate over whether a curb on all night drinking licenses for bars should be imposed in attempt to reduce alcohol related violent crime which is above the New Zealand average but the biggest crime related issue for visitors to Queenstown is likely to be theft from rental cars and Campervans. This is an ongoing problem in New Zealand so take precautions. Don’t leave valuables in view, and if possible don’t leave anything of value in your vehicle at all.
