Bushes grow not only around, but IN this wreck.
Believed to have been a barge associated with the quarry on the Moruya River. Stone from this quarry was used in the pylons
of Sydney Harbour Bridge. The vessel lies in Malabar Creek, off the Moruya River (near George Bass Drive Bridge) on the western bank of Malabar Creek, on the south coast of New South Wales, Australia. I do not know how long the wreck has been in this location, information on the net is sparse, the wreck is undated.

I love the endless photographic opportunities provided by world around me, from the abundance of nature in my own backyard to historic and scenic worldwide destinations.
I am retired, beyond threescore years and ten.
