Sydney Fish Market


Sydney Fish Market offers visitors and Sydneysiders the opportunity to experience an authentic working fish market. It is the largest market of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere and the world’s second-largest seafood market in terms of variety outside of Japan.

Business for the market begins at 5:30am when seafood buyers arrive to check the day’s catch before the auction, where 2,700 crates (52 tonnes) are sold per day.

Be among the action and activity during the daily Behind-the-Scenes tour hosted at dawn each day at 6:40am. Watch oyster shucking, sashimi experts and live products during this interesting look into a day’s trade at the market.

While here, you can also purchase your own seafood and sushi, or enjoy fish ‘n’ chips or ice-cream overlooking the bay.

Sydney Seafood School is also located at the market; it holds a variety of seafood cookery classes including some hosted by Australia’s leading chefs!

A newly developed fish market is currently under construction and is due to be completed in 2024. The current site remains open and fully operational in the meantime.
