Ayrfield

New South Wales

Corrimal was a coastal steamer laid down by Greenock & Grangemouth Dockyard Company, and launched in 1911 for Australian Oriental Line. She changed owners several times, and served as a military transport for the Commonwealth Government during World War Two, supplying American troops stationed in the Pacific. She was bought by Miller & Company in Sydney in 1952 and renamed to Ayrfield, and after decades of service she was laid up and abandoned in Homebush Bay in 1972. The wreck still stand there, visible on the surface together with several other abandoned wrecks. Also see the wrecks of the tug boat Heroic and the former Navy vessel HMAS Karangi.
