The Sydney Directional Waverider lies about 10.9 km (5.86 nautical miles) off the coast of New South Wales in the Tasman Sea which is part of the South Pacific Ocean (show New South Wales on map).
A waverider is a device deployed at sea for wave height measurement. It is typically a bouy which floats on the surface of the water and is anchored to the sea bed.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 them and to fish attracting devices (FADs).
In the near vicinity of the Sydney Directional Waverider the water depth ranges from about 106 to 98.1 metres deep (about 53.7 to 58.1 fathoms / 322 to 349 feet).
