Remains of the Old Early 1900’s Dingo Proof Fence – Dumbleyung – Great Southern – Western Australia

Remains of the Old Early 1900’s Dingo Proof Fence – Dumbleyung – Great Southern – Western Australia

Southern Western Australian Dingo is now Extinct! So Sad

WA Dingo Association – Dingo Facts

By all definitions a native animal which is historically documented by all explorers from 1600’s onwards.
It has adapted and evolved to be a unique Australian species over 5 – 10,000 years. Rock art and fossil remains evidence the antiquity of the species as a naturally evolved canine without any of the specific selected traits associated with interference by man. The dingo colonised the entire mainland of Australia, yet is now only to be found in remote and inaccessible fragmented habitats not seen as useful to humans.

* Now scientifically proven to be a keystone trophic modulator for bio-diversity in all its habitats. Where the dingo is in stable social habitation small native species survive in a healthy state including Bilbies, Quolls and rare wallabies and possums. Where the dingo has been “controlled” read: exterminated – these same small native creatures have fallen into local extinction due to fox and cat predation. After 100 years of the Dingo Barrier fence the once “fertile pasture” is now nothing but barren bedrock, while the “outside” continues to support healthy native vegetation and many rare species

* The dingo is our only natural selective suppressant of foxes, feral cats, rabbits, wild pigs and goats. Non-selective toxins can never hope to emulate natural modulation by predator species. All healthy ecosystems exhibit healthy prey species such as eagles, small raptors, goannas. Where they are absent – so is biodiversity. That is the key to the aboriginal regard for the dingo

Dingo

The Dingo is Australia’s wild dog. It was probably introduced to Australia by Asian seafarers about 4,000 years ago. Its origins have been traced back to a south Asian variety of Grey Wolf (Canis lupus lupus). Recent DNA studies suggest that Dingoes may have been in Australia even longer (between 4,640-18,1000 years; Oskarsson et al 2011), however, the earliest undisputed archaeological finding of the Dingo in Australia has been dated to 3,500 years ago

tandard Common Name
Dingo

Identification
The Dingo, Canis lupus dingo, is a placental mammal which means it gives birth to live young, feeds its young via mammary glands that produce milk and has fur or hair of some form. The colour of a Dingo’s coat is largely determined by where it lives. The ‘standard’ coat colour is ginger with white feet. However in the desert areas, the fur is more golden yellow while in forested areas the fur can be a darker tan to black. The body fur is short while the tail is quite bushy.

Its dog-like appearance with a relatively broad head and erect ears, makes the Dingo Australia’s largest mammal carnivore. With canine teeth longer than those of a domestic dog, the dingo’s muzzle is also longer and tapered.

Size range
Shoulder height: 440-620mm, Body length: 860-1230mm, Tail: 260-380mm, Body mass: 12-24kg.

Distribution
Having been in Australia for over 4,000 years, Dingoes inhabited many parts of mainland Australia but never became established in Tasmania. After European colonisation and the growth of pastoralisation, there was a concerted effort to remove Dingoes from farming areas. As a result, Dingoes are mostly absent from many parts of New South Wales, Victoria, the south-eastern third of South Australia and from the southern-most tip of Western Australia.

Dingoes are regarded as common throughout the remainder of Australia except in the arid eastern half of Western Australia, nearby parts of South Australia and the Northern Territory.

Outback Survival Tip – The Australian Water Tree – these trees are all around Australia, if you ever get lost in the Australian Bush or in the Outback – keep an eye out for the Australian Water Tree, they always have these large bumps or bulbs on them… usually they will carry around 50 litres of fresh water to survive on. They have saved many a life in the Aussie Bush! Video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3AV7KrKj0Jg

These salt lakes are what remain of the ancient river systems. These fill up and even flood during heavy rainfall that occurs every few years. This gives rise to a plethora of life, such as invertebrates and fish, which in turn attract large colonies of waterbirds who breed while food and water resources are plentiful.

Other early accounts describe a road across this lake South of Dumbleyung and was used by Katanning settlers to cart produce to the goldfields in the 1890s. This was the opportunity for local farmers to make a fortune as quickly as the miners. They would load their wagons with flour, sugar, oatmeal, jam and baking flour and when they got to the goldfields actually auction their produce.

Dumbleyung – Western Australia

Dumbleyung (including Lake Dumbleyung)
Small wheatbelt town with famous lake nearby
Dumbleyung is a small wheatbelt town located 275 km south east of Perth. No one knows exactly how the town got its name but it is likely that it is a corruption of the local Aboriginal word ‘dambeling’ which probably meant ‘large stretch of water’. An alternative theory argues that it may well be derived from ‘dumbung’ which either meant a native pear tree or an Aboriginal game played with bent sticks and a hard piece of fruit.

Although in many ways Dumbleyung is a typical wheatbelt town there is one event in its history which makes it uniquely important and separates it from the dozens of other towns in the area.

On New Years Eve 1964, after a particularly wet winter had seen the lake fill to overflowing, Donald Campbell set the world water speed record when he raced his boat Bluebird across the lake at the remarkable speed of 444.66 km/h (276.3 mph). This made him the fastest man both on land and on water. A unique double.

A memorial to Donald Campbell’s achievements is located on Pussy Cat Hill on the lake shoreline. Offering excellent views over the lake, it is clearly signposted ‘Scenic Drive – Lake Dumbleyung’ on the road from Wagin to Dumbleyung.

Lake Dumbleyung, undoubtedly the area’s great attraction, is the largest natural body of inland water in West Australia. It is approximately 13 km long by 6.5 km wide with a catchment area which extends approximately 64 km north towards Kulin, 64 km south towards Narrangerup and 55 km east to Tarin Rock.

In the years when it overflows the water takes a course through the Wagin Lakes into the Beaufort River, thence the Blackwood and into the sea at Augusta.

The first recorded sighting of the lake was in 1843 when two explorers Henry Landor and Henry Maxwell Lefroy travelled through the area looking for pastoral lands and a large body of water which had been mentioned by the local Aborigines.

Landor and Lefroy described Lake Dumbleyung in their journal entry for 17 January 1843. ‘After riding 10 miles, we came in sight of Dambeling, the largest of the lakes – 13 miles by 7 or 8. It is like the others, shallow with many low islands in varied and beautiful form. On the northern and eastern shores, there is a good grazing country down to the lake, ending in precipitous banks and extending over the hills 2 or 3 miles distant from the lake. The water is salt and the shore long, flat and muddy, on which we saw the impressions of two stray horses and a foal…’
