Yes it is the Dog Fence, but further west of Nundroo.

Where does it take you?

You are sort of correct Allan, but what is it called?

It is the office starting point of the longest man made fence in the world....

Thats better Allan, you are spot on

Dog Fence Beach is the correct name and if you or anyone is over that way, its a great place to stop and take in the beauty of the area.

The Milky Bars are in the post.....LOL

Thanks Stephen,
We took a Subaru with camper trailer down there about 1984? and was worried that we would get out again.
It was Roz who came up with the name. She gets a Milky Bar. lol

OK, leaving WA behind, where can you see these lovely Yellow-footed rock wallabies. They are not in the Flinders where we have seen them a couple of times.

Hi Jim

Firstly Dog Fence Beach is not located in WA, but on the Far West Coast of South Australia.

As for those lovely Yellow Footed Rock Wallabies, you photographed them in some form of zoo.

Here are some facts on the Yellow Footed Rock Wallabies

These images were taken in the wild in the Flinders Ranges.
according to Mr Google, they can be found in very small pockets in Queensland, New South Wales, and South Australia.

If I had to pick where your images was taken, is it Alice Springs Desert Park?.


Cheers


Stephen

Yes Stephen, you are perfectly correct, it is in SA. I keep on forgetting how far west SA stretches.
And yes, the little critters are in an enclosure, but where ? It is not Alice Springs Desert Park .
There were a surprising number of them, and in a surprising place ....... at least we were surprised.

No Stephen, not Monarto Zoo either.

It's a wonderful little enclosure housed behind the Charleville National Parks and Wildlife office. Took a bit of finding, but the great view of these spectacular animals was worth some effort.

The wallabies , as in the wild, were very shy and spooked easily.

I know this really isn't a "pick this place" location, but it's well worth visiting when going through Charleville for other reasons.

" Rock Wallaby Viewing - King St
The rangers at the Charleville Environmental Protection Agency office (National Parks) are hosts to the Yellow Footed Rock Wallaby. Visitors are invited to pop in and see them frolic and play in their own specially built enclosure. "

Cheers
Jim

Hi Stephen,
Re "wonder where this is".
Would it be the small cave on the western side of the Stuart Highway, just south of Kulgera?

Hi Gerry

No it is not them, but in South Australia, not far from a famous bush pub.
