Sydney Fish Markets

This outing was from Central Station to Sydney’s Fish Markets, Blackwattle Bay at Pyrmont,
by Light Rail

It was easy to get there, as we just got off at the ‘Fish Market’ station and followed the signs.
We crossed the road at the lights (Bank Street, under the Western Distributor) turned left, and then followed the ‘zebra striped’ pedestrian path into and through the car park.

Sydney Fish Market is said to be the largest working fish market in the Southern Hemisphere. It includes six seafood retailers, as well as other shops and restaurants.

The then State Government announced in April 2010 that the fish market would have an upgrade. The planned redevelopment of the market was expected to be completed by the end of 2012, but suffered a setback. news item

We arrived in time for a late lunch, but earlier would be better I think.
The retail markets are open from 7am until about 4pm
