Homebush Bay in Sydney Olympic Park has been home to a number of shipwrecks from the world war era but there’s one distinctive shipwreck that catches the attention of the public. It’s the SS Ayrfield ship used by the government during World War II to transport supplies to American troops in the Pacific. In 1972, the ship was decommissioned and was put to its final resting place in Homebush Bay.
