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.

  • 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 :)
  • 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.
  • Always come and visit Sydney Fish Market when in town. Amazing selection of the finest fresh fish and shellfish that Australian waters can provide. Lots of the fishmongers sell prepared sushi and sashimi to eat there. So fresh and an incredible selection of all types of seafood. Parking is easy, recommend you get there early. They’re actually holding a new fish market next door, so do pay a visit to the old fish market before it moves. Highly recommended.
  • It's no Tsukiji, but very respectable shops in their own rights. I love the lobster, oysters, and prawn/scampi choices & I love that you can ask the shops to cook for you even more. Make sure you go to Peter's. Had lobster tail at Nicholas' and Peter's and much prefer the one in Peter's. There's even a decent coffee shop & deli as well.
