RACQ has released their 'safest' suburbs list for the Cairns region.
They say it's based on there being no claims for malicious damage, home theft or vandalism.
RACQ Spokesperson CLARE HUNTER said the best way to reduce your chance of theft was to make your home as unattractive as possible.
"It's a terrible feeling to find someone has robbed and ransacked your home, especially when there are some very simple ways to minimise risk." She said.
"Consider installing sensor lighting, double locks and security screens. Also, store easy to carry items such as laptops, jewellery and cash out of sight."
Rounding out the top five 'safest' suburbs is Whitfield with 1 claim and Kewarra Beach with 2 claims in the past three years.
