The fence that was supposed to keep weeds out of a storied farmhouse in the Australian outback has been replaced with a $2 million fence.
The $2.4 million project, the culmination of two years of planning and construction, was announced in November by Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.
The Stirling House, a 300-acre farmhouse on the edge of the Stirling Range, has been a fixture of rural Australia since 1885.
It was the site of the first Australian-run cattle station, which was closed in 1887, and was later converted to a grain mill.
It has also been home to several prominent Australian celebrities including the actress Ellen Grant, and the film director David Lynch.
The plan was to have a 500-metre fence surrounding the farmhouse, which is the largest in Australia, but was reduced to a 400-metres fence around the area by the Australian Bureau of Meteorology, due to the high humidity in the area.
In 2017, the government announced it was reducing the height of the fence, with a 500 metre fence around Stirling to 400 metres, and a 300 metre fence for the surrounding pasture.
The stables at the Stirlings were built around 1890 by John Stirling, a local cattle farmer, and he was known for his extensive cattle and pig farms in the region.
He was killed in 1914 in a horse attack and remains a popular legend in the local community.
