Information

The Dog Fence stretches through the remote, isolated country of the Australian outback. It divides the cattle grazing districts on the northern side from sheep grazing districts on the southern side. The dog fence assails rough, inhospitable terrane, and pervades rare views of the South Australian landscape including the Great Australian Bight and Lake Frome. It borders the grazing properties into New South Wales where it takes in the Paroo River, then it goes north and east across Queensland to the Darling Downs. The Dog Fence is maintained today, to keep the dingo, Australia’s wild native dog, from killing grazing animals, mainly sheep.
