Sydney Fish Market

The Sydney Fish Market, on the harbour, is one of Sydney's most interesting attractions.

Why go there

This authentic fisherman's market on Blackwattle Bay has all the hustle and bustle of a busy, fresh food market. The world's second largest seafood market - after Tokyo - has an impressive variety of the freshest seafood.

You can stock up on seafood, enjoy fish'n chips overlooking the bay or learn how to cook seafood to perfection at the Sydney Seafood School.

Don't miss

The excitement of the early morning seafood auction of the day's catch.

A behind-the-scenes tour every Weekday (except Public Holidays and between Christmas and New Year) at 6:40am.

Access for all

Mobility access throughout venue and toilets

The Sydney Fish Market Light Rail station is across a paved section of the railway tracks then up an access ramp from the market. Clear signage guides the way.

A unisex accessible toilet is available at the markets.

Access is available into the market's arcade and most shops.

The tour is available but access to the auction floor is limited. Make sure you contact the tours office in advance on + 61 2 9004 1108.

The Sydney Seafood School is located upstairs - lift access is available and people using wheelchairs have access to a long table during cooking sessions.

How to get there

Public transport

The most convenient access to the market is via light rail. It's a short ride away from Central Station, Haymarket, Darling Harbour, or Star City Casino. View all Metro Light Rail station locations.

Wheelchair users board the light rail from accessible platforms that offer roll-on and off access and tactile direction and warning tiles.

Light rail carriages provide designated wheelchair bays, colour contrast grab rails and audio station announcements. All outdoor stations are equipped with sheltered seating and/or space for wheelchair users.

Buses 501 (from George and Bathurst streets) and 389 (from Bondi Junction) disembark passengers at the intersection of Harris Street and Pyrmont Bridge Road, about five minutes from the market. However, you must cross busy roads to access the markets.


Dedicated wheelchair parking spaces are provided in the commercial car park at the market.
