Floating Forest in Sydney

In our daily life everything is cyclical, and it happens sometimes that the death of  one thing  promotes the appearance of the new one.  The greatest  example of it is the British  steamship SS Ayrfield, which during a lot of years remains abandoned on the shores of  the Olympic village in Sydney.  The rusty  hull of the vehicle during this time has turned   into the real  Mangrove forest.  The second name of the ship is “The Floating Forest”, the meaning of which is literal.

 

The steamship was built in  Britain in 1911 and was used by the Australian government  as a cargo carrier  for the American troops, located in the  Pacific during  the World War II. It had been sold  in 1950 and then   used  for coal shipping from Newcastle to Sydney.  However, in 1972  the decision has been made to send the steamship  to the Homebush Bay, where  it  remains to this day.

 

 

Interesting fact is that before  the Olympic games in 2000 there were constant  shipwrecks in the Bay  that’s why it received a new  name  “ ships’  cemetery ”.  Nevertheless, the SS Ayrfield still stays afloat and during all these years and the mangrove trees have grown on it  creating a real forest.  There is no doubt that the “Floating Forest”  is unusually breathtaking at sunset and  photographers  from all over the world come to this place  to take a picture of  phenomenon  how  nature changes everything, what has been created by human being  but wasn’t converted thoroughly.
