interesting to see the different types of sea life caught that were for sale. The different markets also cooked my foods and sold them. The portions were large and the seafood was fresh. I enjoyed a good lunch there. It is worth a trip there...More
In addition to the good choice of fish [and huge lobsters] there was a vast amount of eateries that you could enjoy a snack or a meal.
It was really nice social scene as well as being a fish market.
Another good experience in Sydney.

With influx of Chinese travellers (Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan and specially mainland Chinese) this is just full of those.
Almost everywhere you look is 95% Chinese.
I won’t surprise with population and demand for fresh seafood.
The environment is a friendly family environment.
First of all, you must like fish. The array of different types of fish/shellfish on offer is probably the best in the world. This is not fine dining, but an experience of pleasure in a brilliant Sydney setting beside the ocean. We chose to sit...More

I go the fish markets at around 8:30 am during the weekdays to avoid the lunch time rush and buy what I need to take home. For those wishing to have lunch, no later than about 11:00 am would be a good time to look around to see what’s on offer, find a seat and then order your meal. Sitting outside, breathing in the fresh salty air, with the harbour with the fishing boats view and a tasty seafood lunch accompanied by a great Australian white wine will be remembered as a heavenly outing for years to come. Bon Appétit.

The wholesale auctions are an event in itself. The amount of seafood exhibited (second only to Tokyo) is enormous. The Dutch auction is where the retailers bid on the seafood. The seafood is fresh off the boats and the bidding atmosphere is exhilarating. This is a once in a lifetime experience and never to be forgotten.
