Safer Parking



Are you planning a tramping trip? Going on a bus trip around beautiful Fiordland or a cruise on lovely Lake Te Anau / Doubtful Sound / Milford Sound? Are you concerned about leaving your vehicle and valuables in an unsupervised public car park, vulnerable to theft and vandalism?

For your safety and security, Te Anau Police encourage you not to leave your car in public car parks. Below are some snippets out of the local newspapers showing what can happen if you leave your vehicle parked elsewhere.

Owned and operated by long-time Te Anau residents, Chris and Linda Kendall, Safer Parking specializes in the secure parking of cars, camper vans, bikes, caravans and boats - in fact, anything on wheels!
