Dingo Barrier Fence Drive - 176km >> Travel from Dalby via Jandowae Rd

Extending 5300 kilometres from Jimbour to Fowlers Bay in the Great Australian Bight, South Australia, the barrier fence was constructed as a means to manage the impact of dingoes and wild dogs around sheep and cattle grazing land and provides a safer environment for our native animals and landowners.

A display depicting the Dingo Barrier Fence is found in Jandowae opposite the Jandowae Community and Cultural Centre. Three timber dingoes are seen in front of a mural, the display protected by sections of fence similar to the actual dingo fence.

Directions: Start at the Jandowae Community and Cultural Centre and head south along Dalby Road. Travel for 16kms and turn left into Lyndley Connection Road.

If you are driving from Jimbour, head north towards Jandowae. Drive for 7kms and turn right into Lundley Connection Road. Drive a further 2.2kms and turn left into Lyndley Lane and finally drive 1.4km until you reach the junction of Lyndley Lane and Fletchers Road. Turn right.

The fence begins at the corner post of the four fences to your right. When you cross the next grid, the fence is on your left and a little further on, the maintenance begins.

The longest man made structure is constructed of wooden posts, strainers, star pickets, wire and different types and sizes of netting and is cleared on both sides to a width of 5m.

While in Jandowae quench your thirst at one of the authentic country pubs, visit Athlone Cottage, the Boomerang Factory and Jandowae Dam - a popular fishing, swimming, skiing and boating spot.
