Where Is the World’s Longest Fence?

Can you imagine a fence long enough to stretch from New York City all the way to California?

There is such a fence, and it’s in Queensland, a part of Australia. The Australians built this fence around their vast sheep-raising areas, to protect their flocks from wild dogs and other animals.

The wire fence is six feet tall and is buried one foot in the ground. Including all its twists and turns, the fence stretches more than 3,435 miles!
