We are now well on the way east and heading for the next major stop of Kalgoorlie. We pass yet another historic site where the longest fence in the world, the Rabbit Proof Fence, was first started. The fence runs north to south through the vast Western Australia centre from Port Hedland to Augusta.
We follow another historic feat of engineering along the roadside – the water pipeline that was completed in 1902 which stretches over 650 Kms from Perth to Kalgoorlie and was built to supply fresh water to the goldfields around Kalgoorlie. Also note the state of the main road from Perth to Adelaide – it’s actually dirt !!
