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.

  • Although there are good fish and seafood, not all of them are well known in Portugal, as in the case of "abalone" or "sea cucumber"

  • Simply amazing place to eat drink, buy and just be around. Follow this instructions, 1. Look all the places where they sell fresh fish, (build your appetite) 2. grab a table 3. Head to your favorite spot and buy all kinds of fish either raw of cooked. 4. Buy a nice bottle of wine from the shop. 5. Look after the seagulls and don't feed them 6. Finish with some cheese and wine.
  • The fish markets are a great place for quality sashimi at very reasonable prices! Beats going to a sushi train hands down. There's some really good seafood platters going around here too but don't fill up on chips! Gets really packed around lunch time, so if you are in a group, divide and conquer to find yourself a table, otherwise take a stroll over to the park across the street. Lastly, don't feed the seagulls!
  • Good place to come early in the morning to pick up some fresh fish and seafood. Excellent quality and relatively cheap you can even buy fish fillets that are ready for sushi. Several available shops inside including a deli for cheese, a wine bottle shop and a fresh fruit store; even one with fruit dipped in chocolate on a stick. Highly recommended if you can beat off the organised tours of Asian tourists that are seen there from beginning to end.
  • Although it gets extremely busy during peak times, the fish and food options are to die for. No end to the amazing sashimi, oyster and crab options. Grab lunch and hang outside in the sun to eat, or visit the Yumcha up stairs.
  • Love the outdoor seatings! The food are reasonable priced and you can see the deep blue sea and sky while enjoying the fresh seafood and wine. But be aware of your seafood because seagull eyes are very sharp and will taken your food away!
