    Looks like a poorly maintained cricket field. The "ship" would be the pitch, the size seems correct for it. And cricket is a very popular sport in Aussieland.

    Related note - try looking for shipwrecks on land near the Aral Sea. The water there has slowly been drying up for years and massive tankers that used to be below water are now out in the middle of desert. That would be a cool find.

    I tried that but couldn't find anything, the resolution is too low in that area.

    I agree.. Looks like a very worn pitch to me!
    And considering where it is we would know if its a memorial to a sunken ship

    EDIT: another interesting fact is the coast between Melbourne & Adelaide is known as the "Shipwreck Coast"
