Crowded places are locations where large groups of people gather on a regular and foreseen basis such as markets, street malls, festivals, clubs, tourist attractions, shopping centres, sporting stadiums, transport hubs, major events etc. Crowded places can be attractive targets for terrorists who seek to cause mass casualties.
Owners and operators of crowded places have a responsibility to safeguard people that are working in, using or visiting their site. To assist owners and operators, the Australian Government has developed a range of materials that outline how to implement protective security measures at their site.
