Visiting beaches for holiday is always impressive. Each beach has different panorama yet all of them is always stunning. The blue sea blends harmoniously with the colored seashore, the plants, and the big blue sky. Now, let’s visit a wonderful sea, it is a bay, located in the west part of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. It is Homebush Bay. Separated 16 km from the central business district of Sydney, the bay of Homebush has such an artificial and natural shoreline. The river of Parramatta is on its northern side.

The Long History of Homebush Bay

Homebush Bay has a long history. Along with British colonialism in Australia, the colony of D’arcy Wentworth, an assistant surgeon, established this area. 3 centuries later, the Bay of Homebush was turned into a heavy industry center with the reclamation for industrial facilities accommodation. As the operations of industry were decreased, this bay was turned into the dumping ground for unwanted material in a large range. All waste to broken up ships were here. In 1980s, the bay was begun to regenerate and rehabilitate. The Bicentennial Park construction was also led. The regeneration program of the mangrove saltmarshes and wetlands was also initiated. And in the present day, Homebush Anchorage is worth to visit.

Shipwrecks for the Rustic Shoreline Look

The historical background ofHomebush Bay is strengthened with the shipwrecks in this site. You can find SS Ayrfield or SS Corrimal, a ship built in the UK in 1911.This ship is used to transport coal from Newcastle to Sydney. Unfortunately, the hull was broken up. And until these present days, this ship is ended up in the bay of Homebush.

Some other ships are also ended up in this bay: SS Heroic and SS Mortlake Bank which were also from UK and HMAS Karangi from Sydney. Those shipwrecks show the role of Homebush Anchorage as the garbage space for ships. However, those ships are not ruining the panorama; they increase the classic and historic look instead. The photographers are interested with the position of SS Ayrfield. Some woods are growing on the ship. The trees make the ship perfect for the rustic look, especially for sunset and sunrise.

Take a Walk in Bicentennial Park

You can also visit Bicentennial Park after you spend your time in Homebush Bay. This park has a stunning and picturesque 1.3 km walking track. You will pass the boardwalk of mangrove previously and finally you will find the shipwreck lookout. The salt marsh and water bird refuge with birds as you look at your left side. Soon, you can point the shipwreck of SS Heroic.

*** Homebush Bay has a very wonderful rustic panorama and view with the shipwrecks floating on the bay. Visit also Bicentennial Park to take a walk through the mangrove, see the water birds.
