The Dog Fence
A Journey Across the Heart of Australia
At 5400 kilometres, the Dog Fence is one of the longest man-made structures on Earth. It slices across Australia's desert heart, dividing the continent to keep dingoes away from livestock.
James Woodford embarks on a journey to follow its length, travelling some of the loneliest and harshest country in the world. He begins on a clifftop overlooking the Great Australian Bight and ends in the foothills of Queensland's Bunya Mountains. He meets many of the remarkable people who maintain this amazing barrier as he passes through rocket ranges, nuclear test areas, sacred sites and places where nineteenth-century explorers perished.
'Award-winning author James Woodford follows the fence on an epic journey through some of the loneliest and harshest country in the worldâ¦A thrilling account of a little known Australia, this is a funny, warm and compelling tale of the outback, bushmen and wildlife.' Age
