Dingoes are a lot more to the North up around the Cape in Northern Queensland and across the top of Australia and out into our desert areas.

Dingoes are a natural predator here and there's not much they won't eat from insects up to cattle if they can drag 1 down which they can do in a pack and will attack a mob of sheep and kill or maul most just for the thrill of the chase.
Most Dingoes and wild dogs are shot on sight and the Dingo is actually under threat and now the breed is under threat from wild dogs as they cross breed.

Frazier Island off the Queensland coast is 1 place where there's still pure bred Dingoes and a few places in our tropical North and desert regions

Generally a Dingo is about the size of a Kelpie or a bit bigger in height.
The Australian Red Cattle dog has Dingo in it's blood line which can be seen in a Cattle dog's head at certain angles.
Dingoes don't actually bark but yowl and I've heard them "sing" when I and my son were on a cull hunt in our Northern Territory years ago just on dark.
It's a real lonely sort of sound eerie but beautiful sort of like when wolves howl.

Around here and further out and up North and Down South there's a lot of wild dogs that are shot,trapped and poisoned and a lot of them are about the size of a German Shepherd and dangerous as they hunt in packs sometimes.

Dingoes were introduced into Australia probably around 5-12,000 years ago by Indian/Asian traders depending on what history you read and are supposedly related to the Indian wild dog.

This is 1 I shot with my 30/06AI years ago on a cull hunt in the Northern Territory
