Sydney Fish Market
save place
Australia's Home of Seafood
The sprawling Sydney Fish Market is considered the largest of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere and the third largest in terms of variety in the world. That means about 2,700 crates (or 50-55 tons) of more than 100 species of the freshest catch from Australian, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands is sold every single day. Simply walking the indoor stalls or grabbing fish and chips on the Pyrmont waterfront is a satisfying experience, but there are more unique ways to discover the market from a cooking class at the Sydney Seafood School, the city’s oldest culinary institution, to a behind-the-scenes tour. The latter is the best way to learn about the market's daily auctioning system and efforts to promote sustainability, including the allocation of $10,000 environmental grants for fishermen and seafood businesses.
