The Botany Bay Wide FAD lies about 17 km (9.17 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 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 Botany Bay Wide FAD the water depth ranges from about 140 to 136 metres deep (about 74.6 to 76.5 fathoms / 448 to 459 feet).

The nearest Australian towns, villages or cities to the Botany Bay Wide FAD are the metropolis of Sydney (show me), the town of Bundeena (show me) and the village of Maianbar (show me).
