Sydney Fish Market is the best place to buy and eat fresh fish in Sydney and a tourist attraction in its own right. Easily accessed by light rail, the fish markets are just past the iconic Anzac Bridge.
Sydney Fishmarket Main Entrance
The Sydney Fish Market has its own light rail stop called Fish Market Station. There is only one light rail line that starts at Central Station, which passes Paddy’s Market, Darling Harbour and the Star Casino before reaching the Sydney Fish Market.
Paid parking is also available on site, or you can walk from Darling Harbour or the Casino.
Blue Swimmer Crabs
There are many big name fish sellers at the market, offering a very wide selection of produce. If you know what you want it pays to shop around as each stall has specials.
Most of the stalls also have dedicated Sashimi Bars, making the Fish Markets a great place to pick up reasonably priced, fresh sashimi.
Once you have completed your shopping, you can by a range of interesting cooked seafood from a number of dedicated food stalls. Mornay lobsters, seared scallops and combination platters are all available for very reasonable prices.
There are also a few upmarket seafood restaurants and cafes on site.
View of Anzac Bridge
If you purchase food you have the choice of trying to find a table inside or eating on the deck outside which has a great view of Anzac Bridge.
If you eat outside beware of the fearless seagulls, we saw more than a few chips and other seafood pieces stolen from plates right in front of diners. This happened more closer to the waters edge.
Sydney Rock Oysters are one of the tastiest oysters in the world, and are freshly shucked for you at this stall.
Another highlight are the seared scallops, which were 3 for $10. A mix of mozzarella and parmesan cheese placed with a scallop in a shell is seared with a blowtorch. Highly recommended.
Tuna Steaks and Scallops
Our shopping list included these amazing tuna steaks, scallops and squid.
For lunch we got a combination platter for $28 which included fish, chips, mussels, scallops and oysters.
