Sydney Fish Market, Sydney

3.8
#1 of 39 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.

    This here is very famous fish market, many choose liquid. I person likes most is to have the fish and oysters, price money not 貴. More than 20 塊 money Australian dollar taxi-you can eat half raw oysters. But this many people here, I built Council members to find a seat bought East West again to eat.

    How did the fish market in Sydney, Australia visited in the afternoon, the better time is likely in the early morning. Nevertheless, it was a rewarding experience. Marine animals of all kinds are available for sale and a lot of restaurants offer all possible goodies. Hungry seagulls circling screeching over the terrain and there were even two fairly large pelicans, who wanted to have something from all the fish off.

  • Popular with tourists and locals for very fresh seafood. Many stalls sell cooked seafood. Fresh oysters are available freshly shucked. Easy parking. There are many seafood shops at Sydney Fish Market and one gets a good choice with a good selection. Prices are reasonable. There are tables and chairs along the corridor to sit down and enjoy the cooked seafood with the sea breeze blowing through. A pleasant way to enjoy the meal.
  • Never a full moment at the fish market. You've got to pick your times. Being a Sydney institution the weekends can get rather manic. Apart from that the place is awesome. Great vibe and huge selection of on-site eating as well as the only place to buy fresh seafood in Sydney.
  • I went to fish market at 12.10pm for lunch. Then I paid $4 (cash) for a parking ticket at 13.05pm at the machine which is near the toilet. Then I drove a car to the exit. Then I put the ticket in BUT the machine was shown that I had to pay $4 again. I spoke to an officer but he said I had to pay $4 otherwise I couldn't go home. I said I paid $4 cash already but he didn't believe me. I am very hate fish market now. I don't want to go ANYMORE.
  • Plenty of fresh seafood choices to buy home. There were also restaurants to satisfy your seafood needs. Place closes at 1630, a bit too early if there are visitors there having late lunch or dinner. Will be asked to finish your food or take away for them to clean the place
  • It's over-hyped rubbish. The Fish Market was always described to me as being a great place to go and eat seafood. I decided to check it out and was incredibly underwhelmed. The facilities are grimy and it's far too crowded. The quality and price of the food on offer also left a lot to be desired. I've been once and that's more than enough for me. I might reconsider if it's overhauled, but in it's current state, I wouldn't go out of my way to visit.

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.
