The Floating Forest of Homebush Bay, Sydney/s2

Situated on the south bank of the Parramatta River and in the inner west of Sydney, the affluent suburb of Homebush Bay one upon time was the abandoning ground for a big range of industrial wastes. This might be included a few decommissioned ships. In order to break them up to salvage steel and parts being be reused, the private companies should have to pay fee a month to the Maritime Services Board. It may be noticed that the ship-breaking processes started to work in 1966, yet finished early afore all the ships tied in the bay that might be broken down. Although all ships were broken down, there still had at least four ships’ hull and other remains of many barges and small vessels located in Homebush Bay. These are according to the historic Shipwrecks Act, 1976 that protected all shipwrecks over five years old
