Fences of Australia


By Jack Bradshaw

From stone to post and rail, from the utilitarian to the sculptural, a well-built fence is a thing of beauty and a monument to workmanship. These practical but symbolic structures are part of the story of Australia.

Starting with 7,000-year-old Aboriginal fish traps and ending with a look into the future with virtual fencing, Jack Bradshaw traces the history of Australia’s fences in words and pictures.
