SS Ayrfield, Sydney – BT03

SS Ayrfield

The SS Ayrfield is one of many decommissioned ships in Homebush Bay, just west of Sydney, but what separates it from the other stranded vessels is the incredible foliage that adorns the rusted hull. The beautiful spectacle, also referred to as The Floating Forest, adds a bit of life to the area, which happens to be a sort of ship graveyard.

Originally launched as the SS Corrimal, the massive 1,140-tonne steel beast was built in 1911 in the UK and registered in Sydney in 1912 as a steam collier which was later used to transport supplies to American troops stationed in the Pacific region during World War II. The ship went on to serve as a collier between Newcastle and Miller’s terminal in Blackwattle Bay.

The rusted hull of the ship along with the foliage growing inside it makes it a very popular subject to photograph. It was such a great morning when I took this photograph, the sky really turned it on, and it was so beautiful being out there all alone in peace.
