Sydney Fish Market
Laying claim to being the largest fish market in the southern hemisphere, watch as the market processes an array of fresh sea-foods for the day's sale. 
It has a variety of cooked and fresh sea-foods, from lobsters, prawns, fresh oysters and various shashimi cuts. Dine outdoors, whilst enjoying the picturesque view of Blackwattle Bay. A seafood platter, shown in pic, for two went for about AUD52.
ABBATip: - The Sydney Fish Market is at its most lively from the early mornings till about 1330hrs.- Guard your food from the Seagulls. They will go for a quick snatch and grab if given the opportunity.
