Unbeatable seafood feasts by the bay... just because you can!


First Stop: Sydney Fish Market

How excited I am to be posting about Sydney?! VERY. Without a doubt, my first piece of advice when it comes to Sydney in general: study the map and transport system in great detail. It is Australia's most representative and bustling city, but when it comes to city planning, it is quite a train wreck. Don't let that stop you from having an exciting holiday at Sydney though, there is so much to explore, experience, dine and enjoy here!
As compared to Melbourne, I am so much more an inexperienced tourist in Sydney and would not proclaim this to be anywhere near a guide, but what I can tell you is what you need to take note at these places, what's good to have, relevant background information, and whether these popular attractions are worth going! Our first stop in this city was the extremely famous Sydney Fish Market that looks out into the Blackwattle Bay. We were wondering if it was Darling Harbour - that is almost a 1-km hike away involving slopes and quite a bit of navigation.

The Sydney Fish Market is one of the largest functioning public fish markets in the whole of the Southern hemisphere, with an exciting atmosphere that you cannot miss out when you are here. We were there on the rainy Easter weekend, partly  to soak up the festivities, and coincidentally saw some media coverage there too. But other than that... the markets were bursting at its seams with tourists from all kinds of cultures... congregating for the love of seafood over that holiday weekend. Pretty universal obsession, I guess, but it's not hard to tell why! Much of the business stall owners comprise Australians, Italians and Chinese people, so you can enjoy a lot of cooking styles as well... especially black pepper steamed crabs!

It was very, very crowded, and everyone was jostling to buy from the different stalls to create their lunch spread. The business owners are very efficient though, so there wasn't much to wait. The whole area isn't very large, but definitely more than sufficient to indulge in your seafood feast. The popular choices are the sashimi, live oysters, crabs, seafood combination and red wine! Even though it is cheaper than what you can get in a restaurant, to dine to an ultimate level of satisfaction, do set aside around AUD20/pax. The tables that line the Blackwattle Bay will let you have a lovely view of the yachts and boats, as well as the ubiquitous seagulls that may join you in your meal.
