Originally a rabbit-proof fence, built in the 1880s; the various fences were made higher to exclude dingoes in the 1940s, making it the longest fence in the world stretching over 8500km. Today the length of the fence being about 5600km.
Hungerford’s Royal Mail Hotel constructed in 1873 of corrugated iron was transported over 200kms from New South Wales on bush tracks and was originally a Cobb & Co Staging Post where teams of horses were swapped and tired horses stabled, rested and fed. The hotel has an atmosphere of friendly ‘back to basics’, ‘she’ll be right’ country hospitality, which makes you feel comfortable and at home. Although a cold beer and great food are the mainstays of most pubs, appreciation for these simple pleasures is amplified when you are in the remote outback.
