The SS Aryfield is an old, abandoned ship off the coast of Sydney, Australia. However, just because the ship is 102 years old and cannot be used as for transportation any longer doesn't mean that it has become redundant. On the contrary, the SS Aryfield has become a fantastical floating forest, blooming with tropical plants and colorful flowers while encircling Australia's majestic coastline.

The ship's rusty hull only serves to enhance the beauty of the vegetation on board, giving it the feel of a post-apocalyptic greenhouse. Since the ship is so big, it can hold full-grown mangrove trees, making it a true forest, rather than just a simple garden.

The SS Aryfield proves that abandoned vehicles don't necessarily have to remain abandoned forever. Instead, everything from cars to bikes to yachts can be converted into a sanctuary for lush vegetation and beautiful nature.
