102-Year-Old Majestic Ship Becomes Abandoned ‘Floating Forest’



The 1,140 tonne SS Ayrfield, which currently 'resides' in Homebush Bay, Sydney, is a peculiar ship.

Originally built in the United Kingdom back in 1911 and later registered as a steam collier in Sydney, the vessel was used to transport supplies to American soldiers stationed in the Pacific, during World War II.

Finally decommissioned in 1972, the 'wizened' vessel has been left to its own devices.

In the past few decades, it has achieved an impressive green foliage throughout its deck and haul, adding life and character to the area as its 'Floating Forest'.

Have a look at this enchanting sleeping giant, below:
