The Sydney Fish Market is the largest market of its kind in the southern hemisphere (trading somewhere over 14,500 tonnes of seafood annually) so you can imagine it’s pretty damn busy. Those looking to buy the freshest seafood imaginable can also learn to cook it at the Seafood School where classes run on a daily basis, held by some of the country’s best chefs. On another positive note, the market encourages sustainability by promoting the encouragement of responsible fishing, farming and management practices. Visitors can make a day of it by dining at a number of great venues nearby before they make their haul.
