The Rabbit Proof Fence

This fence lays claim to being the longest  fence in the world. It was constructed between 1901 and 1907 to keep rabbits and other vermin out of Western Australia. In the 1950's myxomatosis was introduced to control the rabbits, the fence still remains and but is now called The State Barrier Fence of WA.  You can read more about it  here
