The Dividing Fences Act 1961 requires that your fence must be ordinarily able to resist the trespass of cattle or sheep. This does not mean that you need to have sheep or cattle on your property, but as a minimum requirement it must be of such a type and strength so that it can be ordinarily resist the trespass of cattle or sheep. Checking out the type of fencing that has been erected in your area will give you a good guide as to what is accepted as the fencing standards.
