dog fence


dog fence
The dog fence is the longest continuous barrier constructed on earth. Stretching 5300 km from the Great Australian Bight in South Australia across the country and through Queensland, the fence is designed to keep out the dingoes (the dogs) in the north from sheep country in the south. Much of the original wire-netting fence has been upgraded, with some sections electrified using solar power.
