The aims of this paper are to describe a series of community safety action projects in three North Queensland cities, and to report their results. These projects had as their major objective improvements in the safety of the environments in and around licensed venues in the central city entertainment areas. They were designed as replications of the safety action intervention model developed in Surfers Paradise in 1992 and 1993.
