If you are thinking of making a special trip there, I would not recommend it. If you think this is like the Sydney Fish market, you will be disappointed. The place is being renovated so all you get is just a fresh seafood shop, a...More

Thank you for your honest review. We are at the tail end of our renovations with the new fish market due to open in December 2018, where we will have 11 new eateries, a new fish shop, and oceans of choice. Please come and visit...More
Currently only one small stall of fresh seafood is operating, with one Chinese restaurant which opens at 11.30am. Major renovations ongoing to add 11 eateries, so would strongly suggest giving this a miss till more stores are open and operating

It’s a relatively small market with only one small restaurant. Choices are limited. If you don’t have time don’t bother. If time is not a big concern it’s good to stroll by and also enjoy the nearby oceanfront scene.
