Create an itinerary including Sydney Fish Market
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 is an iconic destination for seafood lovers in Sydney, offering an impressive selection of fresh fish and seafood, as well as a range of cafes and restaurants where you can sample the catch of the day. As soon as you enter the market, you're hit with the sights and smells of the ocean, making it a true feast for the senses. One of the best things about Sydney Fish Market is the range of seafood available. From oysters to prawns, salmon to lobster, there's something for everyone here. The quality of the seafood is exceptional, with everything being sourced fresh from local waters and expertly prepared by the skilled fishmongers. And if you're not sure what to choose, the friendly staff are always on hand to offer advice and recommendations. In addition to the seafood, the market also offers a range of cafes and restaurants where you can enjoy a meal with a view. The waterfront location provides a stunning backdrop for a leisurely lunch or dinner, and the selection of eateries means that there's something to suit every taste and budget. Whether you're in the mood for fish and chips, sushi, or something more upscale, Sydney Fish Market has you covered. Overall, if you're a seafood lover in Sydney, a trip to Sydney Fish Market is a must.
  • My first time trying raw fish in any form. Instead of choosing a restaurant I chose Sydney fish market. Amazing experience. Staff at every shop was very supportive and yes they are patient. For sushi, the person from the shop(as there are different shops) helped me with what to try as a first timer. If you want to try raw or cooked seafood for first time with lots of variety, this is the place and then you will fall in love with this place and will come again :)
  • I went through the reviews before going to the market and many of them were about prices and crowds. I finally visited this place on a Tuesday early morning (I understand that people who live in Sydney may not be able to do this due to work/school/distance) and it was a pleasant experience. There were few people and shops were just open. All facilities (including toilets) clean and plenty of tables to sit and enjoy your food. Regarding prices, i believe it all depends on what you actually want to eat. For example, I don't buy lobster because I don't like it. However, if you haven't tried it or you want to try it specifically here, then your bill's going to be more expensive. I only bought what I really wanted to eat as for taste and portions. So saying it is expensive or cheap is relative. Ther is a fresh fruit section by the end of the market after all the fish stalks, worth trying The chocolate strawberries! The quality is definitely top, everything is fresh and not smelly. If you are a tourist in Sydney looking for a good, fresh meal, give this place a go!
  • Well, this is a fish market, so please do not expect a smell like Prada or Chanel. If you want fresh fish, maybe still alive, or any kind of seafood 🦞 then this is the place for. Dine in with a great choice or take away for a delicious meal at home. I have seen many great cities at the sea but never such a great place. Sydney Fish Market. Don't miss!
  • Best fresh seafood you'll get in Sydney! We had a bit of everything, Lobster rolls, king crab legs, scallops with rice combo, a decent seafood platter for 2 and the freshest rock oysters. All very delicious! Be prepared to spend, it's not cheap but the quality is fantastic.
