The Coffs Harbour FAD lies about 17.9 km (9.66 nautical miles) off the coast of New South Wales (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 Coffs Harbour FAD the water depth ranges from about 90.6 to 87.7 metres deep (about 47.9 to 49.5 fathoms / 288 to 297 feet).

The nearest Australian towns, villages or cities to the Coffs Harbour FAD are the town of Emerald Beach (show me), the town of Sandy Beach (show me) and the village of Moonee Beach (show me).
