Coober Pedi The dog fence and moonplain
The dog fence is the longest continual construction in the world, originally put up tp protect sheep from dingos. It begins east of surfers paradise in Queensland to north of Ceduna in the Great Australian Bite it's 5,300km in length and goes across 3 states. There is also a 'moonscape'area along the fence it's made up of fossilized shells, a grey soft clay like dirt and cracks that appear to be bottomless, it has a nickname of 'moon plain' and it has been the scene of many movies.
