Sydney Fish Market’s redevelopment is underway, with on-water works taking place to transform the iconic market into a world-class attraction on Blackwattle Bay.

These works require the closure of the boardwalk’s public drop-off pontoon, with recreational vessels no longer able to access the site at this location. The pontoon is now closed and will be relocated to the site’s timber wharf, near the carpark entrance (approximately 200m from its current location).

Works are underway to upgrade the timber wharf so that it is safe for public use and a pedestrian pathway (including lighting and security) towards the main SFM building is being installed. These works are scheduled for completion in mid-late November at which point the pontoon will reopen and access to the Market via harbour will be reinstated for recreational vessels.

Sydney Fish Market apologises for any inconvenience caused to boaties and other recreational water users while the pontoon is closed. As the biggest fish market in the southern hemisphere, accessed by thousands of public visitors each year, Sydney Fish Market is committed to keeping the community notified of the key redevelopment milestones which will see it transformed into a state-of-the-art facility and attraction, strengthening pride in the Australian seafood industry.
