The Dog Fence…

The Dog Fence is a remarkable structure that stretches across Australia’s Southern Region.

Built in the 1880s, the fence is designed to keep the dingo, Australia’s native dog, out of the South-Eastern part of Australia.

Today you won’t find too many pure bred dingoes in Australia, but there are still plenty of wild dogs.

The fence is the longest in the world stretching 5,600 kilometres from the Darling Downs in Queensland to the Great Australian Bight in South Australia…

We’ll be tracking sections of the fence over the next couple of weeks in Australia’s remote outback.

About us…

We love the colours of the Australian Outback, the red earth touching a blue sky on a faraway horizon; and the fabulous coastline of our sunburnt country, where a golden sandy beach is washed over by a warm turquoise blue sea…

A few years ago we graduated from work and re-entered the classroom of life where an education is guaranteed and all that is needed is an open mind.

Cheers, Baz & Janet

    Why is the dingo, a native species, excluded from southeast Australia? Sheep or other agricultural reason?
