Sydney Fish Market, Sydney

3.8
#1 of 65 in Shopping in Sydney
The world's third largest seafood market, Sydney Fish Market incorporates a working fishing port, a wholesale fish market, a fresh seafood retail market, a sushi bar, gift shop, a fruit and vegetable market, a beverage outlet, indoor seating, and an outdoor promenade. There's so much to do and see here that most tourists opt to join an official tour. Contact the market's management ahead of time to organize a behind-the-scenes tour of the popular wholesale seafood auction. You can also drop by on a rainy day for a meal of fresh sushi and sashimi, for which the market is renowned across Australia. Keep in mind that the sushi bar gets extremely busy during lunchtime, so it's best to visit earlier in the morning to avoid crowds and take advantage of indoor seating.

  • Our friend in Sydney recommended fish market to us: he told us that they go to buy sea food there and it is becoming more and more like a tourist place. We went there during lunch time on 24/02. So af...  more »
  • Necessarily there over look! Fresh fish, nice people, civilian rates, nice approach with the tram, just just worth seeing. Fish lovers come here & all their money! Fish choose, pay and thus to the grill station. There, you get fresh exotic fish on a plate within a few minutes. Tasty without end :) Super cheap one at that! Who very fresh fish / shellfish, cheap wants to eat everything that comes out of the sea in Sydney not just get past the Sydney fish market, this is approximately 5-10 minutes walk from Darling Harbour, is open until approximately 16 00 watch!

  • This place is for people who love seafood. They have seafood ready made or customers can choose fresh one and they make for you. You pay service fees on the top of the selling prices of fresh seafood. They have varieties of seafood and a few restaurants. To come here, you can use ferry (public or limited) to Byron Bay and walk about 12 minutes to come to Fish market or you can use light rail to go here. The first time I walked and the second time I used light rail. When you see the sign L, please go down, its location is under ground. Another option you can use bus to come here.
  • Incredible range of seafood - fresh, fried, or grilled. Whether you want to sit in the sun by the water and the pelicans, inside with the hustle and bustle of the market, or at one of the many outer restaurants there is surely something for everyone. The food is delicious, served quickly, and very cheap compared to what you would pay anywhere else - $34.50 for a seafood platter for two?!? A great place to visit for a pile of seafood for everyone. Just watch out for the seagulls!
  • Pretty tourist heavy. The seafood we had at a place that looked quite popular had been sitting in the window for a while. It was dry and a bit tough. While I would go back. It would need to be very convenient for me. Cannot see myself going out of my way to visit again. However it's worth seeing once if you're getting to know Sydney.
  • It's a market. With fish. And seafood. You're kinda stuffed if you're after beef but it's called the Pyrmont Fish Market for a reason. Surprisingly, it's got a little shop with one of the best selections of imported cheese I've ever seen. Well worth the effort to get here for the selection of sushi alone. But the sheer range of fresh seafood on offer is great. Fish of all descriptions, squid, octopus, sardines, clams, scallops, prawns, lobster, scampi, cockles, sea urchin...the list goes on!
  • Lots of parking space available (with charge). Fresh seafood at excellent quality. U can buy the seafood and cook at home , or have a seafood lunch there. Besides eating raw, some shops provide cooked dishes with crab or lobster as well. Cellar is there so you can get a wine or beer and taste with your seafood.
