The Dog Fence
Between Nundroo and Yalata on the Eyre Highway visitors will come across a grid on the road which is part of the famous Dog Fence. A pest exclusion fence that was built during the 1880s to keep dingoes out and protect the sheep, it is one of the longest structures on the planet and the world’s longest fence. Starting on the cliffs overlooking the Great Australian Bight, it winds its way for more than 5,614km across South Australia, New South Wales and Queensland, protecting Australia’s sheep country from dingoes and other vermin.
