Whenever I was in Australia, I never saw a dingo, but I heard then howling at night and my daughter's dogs answered them by barking , which seemed to keep them away.They don't show themselves easily, but friends of mine told us that they were once on the beach and then they saw a group of several dingoes coming towards them and it was rather scary.
Wikipedia:The dingo is a wild dog found mainly in Australia, as well as Southeast Asia, where it is said to have originated. It is currently classified as a subspecies of the grey wolf.
A dingo's habitat ranges from deserts to grasslands and the edges of forests. Dingoes will normally make their dens in deserted rabbit holes and hollow logs close to an essential supply of water.
The dingo is the largest predator in Australia on land. The dingo is seen as a pest by sheep farmers due to attacks on livestock. They also hunt rabbits, kangaroos and rats, which is seen as a benefit to cattle stations.
Dingoes have a prominent role in the culture of Aboriginal Australians as a feature of stories and ceremonies, and they are depicted on rock carvings and cave paintings.
