The Byron Bay FAD lies about 5.44 km (2.94 nautical miles) off the coast of New South Wales in the Coral Sea which is part of the South Pacific Ocean (show New South Wales on map).

A FAD or 'fish attracting/aggregating device' is a man made structure deployed at sea. They can provide a focal point for the aggregation of certain pelagic fish species in the warmer months. In particular, Dolphinfish or Mahi Mahi (Coryphaena hippurus) are particularly well known as being attracted to FADs. In New South Wales, a number of FADs are deployed by the NSW Department of Primary Industries in September and are removed for maintenance in June. They may be redeployed in different locations in following years.

In the near vicinity of the Byron Bay FAD the water depth ranges from about 40.6 to 35.8 metres deep (about 19.6 to 22.2 fathoms / 118 to 133 feet).

The nearest Australian towns, villages or cities to the Byron Bay FAD are the town of Byron Bay (show me), the town of Suffolk Park (show me) and the town of Bangalow (show me).
