Sydney Fish Market
New South Wales,
The Sydney Fish Market is the largest fish market in the Southern Hemisphere and sells nearly 14,500 tons of fish each year. Located inside a huge blue building on the waterfront, the market is home to six seafood retailers, as well as a bakery, gift shop, sushi bar, and several restaurants (outdoor seating is available beneath red-and-white umbrellas overlooking the water). Special events are on the calendar regularly, and behind the scenes tours are available. The market is also home to the Sydney Seafood School, a cooking school established in 1989 to promote the cooking and consumption of seafood.
