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.

Sydney Fish Market Reviews
We went to the fishmarket in Sydney on a Saturday and it was very, very busy. There’s an amazing amount of fresh fish there, prepared in a variety of ways. I had the barramundi grilled, and it was ver... more »
Has an amazing vaerity, however, price point wise is not that good as much as you can expect the place being wholesaler. The common items are equally good quality and bit cheaper at Costco.. however, ... more »
Pretty neat place to go. I was interested in seeing all the food preparations they made at the market to sell. They serve some pretty cool and uniquely designed options, like the sushi donut and sushi taco (see photos). If you take your food outside the market, you get a view of the water, boats and the Anzac Bridge. Directions: For fun and a view, I took the ferry from Milton’s Point at Luna Park, to Pyrmont, in Darling Harbour. Then I walked to the fish market, about 12 minutes from Darling Harbour. On the way back, I left the fish market from the dock area and went across the street, down Wattle Street. When you come to the bridge you can find the *light rail to Central Station*, on the left-hand side. You’ll see a small ramp/stairs that lead you to the train, through the small park greenery.
I always get nice vibe in here. You can visit some fish shops and see all kind of sea food. It's good for shopping for sea food but I found that it is not good for dining. It's expensive and usually deep fried. There is a very nice shop for vegetables. They usually have fresh product. They have a good range of spices. Fish market also has a nice outside seating area, but in weekend it is always crowded. It might be a little too hot as well. But if you find a nice place under shade, you can enjoy eating your food and watch bay. There are also seagulls which tries to steal your food. Don't feed them, that's what they recommend. There is also a big parking area.
