Australia - Outback Australia

Construction of the 3,000km Rabbit Proof Fences commenced in 1901 and took seven years to complete.

This is from Wikipedia : The Outback is the vast, remote, arid area of Australia, although the term colloquially can refer to any lands outside the main urban areas. The term "the outback" is generally used to refer to locations that are comparatively more remote than those areas named "the bush".
