For anyone interested in sea creatures, the spectacle of the Sydney Fish Market is recommended. Every morning from 0530, nearly 3000 crates of seafood are auctioned to a lively bunch of 200 buyers using a computerized clock system. The best way to see the action, and more importantly the incredible diversity of species, is to join a tour group, which will give you access to the auction floor. Normally the general public are confined to the viewing deck high above the floor. Also within the market complex are cafés, some excellent seafood eateries and a superb array of open markets where seafood can be bought at competitive prices.
