The Barwon Heads FAD lies about 8.87 km (4.79 nautical miles) off the coast of Victoria in the Tasman Sea which is part of the South Pacific Ocean (show Victoria 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. FADs are typically deployed for the summer months when the water is warmer and removed over winter for maintenance. They may be redeployed in different locations in following years.

In the near vicinity of the Barwon Heads FAD the water depth ranges from about 57 to 55 metres deep (about 30.1 to 31.2 fathoms / 180 to 187 feet).

The nearest Australian towns, villages or cities to the Barwon Heads FAD are the town of Torquay (show me), the city of Ocean Grove-Barwon Heads (show me) and the town of Leopold (show me).
