Tweed Offshore Artificial Reef is the latest in a series of artificial reefs installed off the New South Wales coastline.
The reef was deployed in October 2020, 7.5km south-east of the Tweed River entrance, about 2.5km off Wommin Bay.
A steel “fish grotto” reef is the centrepiece, at 10m high and 14m in diameter.
There are 32 concrete modules arranged in eight clusters of four surrounding the grotto within a seven hectare area.
The reef lies in 25m of water on a sand bottom, at 28 13.428S, 153 35.473E.
Subtropical species may become more prolific on this reef with climate change.
The reef is located in a great holiday fishing region.
The nearby Tweed River, Fingal Head and coastal reefs near Cook Island are all great fishing spots.
