Information

The Dingo Barrier Fence, (dog fence) is a major landmark on journey along the Anne Beadell Highway. The idea of the dingo fence is simple: to keep feral dogs and dingoes on one side of the wire and vulnerable sheep farms on the other. First built by settlers in the 19th century, the fence has a storied presence in the outback.

The Dingo Fence is the longest fence in the world. It stretches from Jimbour on the Darling Downs and ends west of Eyre Peninsular on the cliffs of the Nullarbor Plains. It is approximately 5300 kilometres long. It can be viewed eight kilometres north west of Injune on the Womblebank Gap Road.

To the West of the fence is the Tallaringa Conservation Park where the corrugations on the Anne Beadell Highway start in earnest. East is Mabel Downs station and Coober Pedy.
