Still exactly how I remember it. Produce is still really fresh and good quality. Next time I'm back in the country and visit I hope the rumoured redevelopment has taken place.

Amazingly fresh seafood. Enjoy the profusion of sashimi, oysters, lobster, grilled calamari, fish and chips etc. Buy a botle of wine, grab a table and you're set for a tasty meal. You can opt to sit inside amidst the hustle and bustle, or, brave the marauding seagulls and sit outside and enjoy the view. Guarding your food from seagulls can... More

What a fabulous experience. So pleased I made the effort to venture to the fish markets. I have never experienced so much choice of seafood. There is every type of seafood you could imagine and the prices are amazing. You can choose between hot and cold shellfish and fish. Brilliant! You can purchase a feast for a small outlay. Watch...

Sydney fish market is a great place to have lunch. A bit more commercial that when I first came here over 20 years ago it is still a wonderful place to eat while watching all the activity of a busy wharf and fish market. You can get a wonderful selection of fish and shell-fish freshly cooked, select a chilled white... More

A typical fishmarket in a city. Reminded me of Billingsgate in London. A great place to spend an hour or so looking at the fishmongers stalls. After walking around, it is recommended to have a tasty fresh seafood meal at one of the numerous restaurants in the area.

Freshness is everything to seafood and this place has it all. Freshes sea urchin I had so far. Good variety of oysters. Lobsters, fish, crabs and you name it. Can sit down and open a bottle of white wine while you eat.
