Holiday warning after robberies

GYMPIE families planning to holiday at Noosa Heads should take care after at least four families were robbed overnight on New Year's Day.

Four Hasting St units, three of which backed on to the beachfront, were all burgled by an thieves between 5pm, January 1, and 7am, January 2.

Cash, wallets, personal items, MP3 players and cameras were common items stolen from each unit.

In at least one instant, the occupants of the unit were sleeping inside at the time of the robbery.

Two of the units were on the second floor of a holiday complex.

Noosa Heads Police Beat Senior Constable Nic Van Der Maat said there were no forced entries and access was most likely gained through closed but unlocked doors.

"Even when you're on holidays you have to be vigilant, make sure you lock you doors," he said.

"It's important to keep valuable items out of sight.

"Don't leave laptops, other electronic devices and wallets in clear view from a rear balcony window.

"Take them to your rooms."
