Sydney Fish Market, Sydney

3.8
#2 of 61 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.

  • First time ever in this place, and absolutely thrilled to say that I enjoyed every minute of my time here. OK… so parking is expensive in this place… but you pay for the luxury of spending time here t...  more »
  • Across Pyrmont bridge from the city and 10 minutes walk further raises the fish market information signs overhead. In very small scale compared to Tsukiji, groups were full. Stops a tour such as this facility is mainly organizations took the city, could not walk because I think too much. I probably ate in Cup's always. But meals are various things and recommend costly sushi and oysters. Crab is expensive anyway, nearly 20000 yen. The crab is high throughout Sydney. I think it should satisfy the hungry in the morning meal at different locations to form.

  • This is world class fish mongering at it's very finest! They will give you a great deal on the seafood of your choice and unlike many seafood markets, they will even cook it up for you on the spot, fresh or battered with a lovely glass of wine or a beer and some chips. Have a look at the boats docked and bring the kids as there is something for everyone. Especially if they are hungry and like seafood!
  • 3 people, vacation out to Sydney. Went to sushi bar and ordered the seafood platter for 3. Pretty sure we came late. Food was fairly cold and soft. Might give it a try another time. When the deep fry is still hot and actually worth tasting Other than that. Interesting setting for photographs. Different to regular city life
  • If you want to eat in a more peaceful atmosphere try to aim to go in the early morning. If you go after 12pm it usually gets really packed and hard to get a seat. There is a liquor store for those who want to have a little alcohol with their meal. There is several stores that sell different fresh produce (oysters, salmon, tuna etc) and stores that sells cooked food (cooked lobster, calamari rings etc). A sushi train and fresh fruits (if you want a healthy dessert). There is a car park if you want to take your car but it is usually quite packed so it might be hard to get parking. You can take a tram to and from the location from central station which is really convenient.
  • Five stars for being the best place to buy fresh seafood, but 2 stars for the food unless you’re into fried food. Be prepared to fight for seats, seagulls and crowds if you want to eat there. If you go during a weekday you may have a decent experience.
  • A unique experience. Interesting. Food court prices are sky high! Expect to pay well above $50 a head. Shops get away with original yet monstrous creations like creamy rice lobster (does not work!) A total tourist trap!

Where to stay in Sydney

Sydney offers visitors hundreds of lodging options in its central area, with choices suitable for most budgets. As expected in a major tourist destination, harbor views play a major role in determining room prices. Expect to pay more for ocean-view suites, especially if you visit at the peak of the tourist season or around big city events. If you don't need to stay in the center of Sydney, consider budget-friendly hotels near the airport, or look for smaller roadside motels in the city's South West neighborhood.
