The start of the 5,600km Dingo Fence near Jandowae, ending in South Australia. Brown sign for Dingo Barrier Fence in the foreground

This location is the start of the 5,600km Dingo Fence, ending in South Australia. It is about 20km from the township of Jandowae, a town that has embraced the Dingo Fence as a feature of the town.

Originally built in the 1880s as a rabbit proof fence, Queensland first proposed in 1948 for the fence to be upgraded to keep out dingos and wild dogs from sheep farms, however, it wasn’t until the late 1950s for it to be built.

The Queensland dingo fence joins with the New South Wales border fence, and finally the South Australian dog fence to form the longest man-made structure in the world. The fence runs through Cameron Corner where the three states meet.

Follow the Dingo Tourist Drive to Boiling Springs Lookout Brown Sign link, which is along the Dingo Fence.
