How did this abandoned cargo ship turn into a floating forest?

Sydney’s suburbs is the last place you would expect to find an abandoned cargo ship with a forest growing out of it. Found in Homebush Bay lies the  remains of the SS Corrimal, a massive 1.1 tonne cargo ship built over a 100 years ago.

Dubbed by locals as The Floating Forest, the rusted steel hull with its incredible forest dangling over its edges is a testament to nature and its power to conquer anything and everything.
