The redevelopment of the Sydney Fish Market is underway, with work on the water underway to transform the iconic market into a world-class attraction on Blackwattle Bay.
These works require the closure of the public landing pontoon on the promenade, as pleasure craft can no longer access the site at this location. The pontoon is now closed and will be relocated to the site’s timber quay, near the entrance to the car park (approximately 200 m from its current location).
Work is underway to modernize the wooden wharf so that it is safe for the public and a pedestrian path (including lighting and security) to the main GDF building is being installed. This work should be completed in mid-late November, when the pontoon will reopen and market access via the port will be restored for pleasure boats.
Sydney Fish Market apologizes for any inconvenience caused to boaters and other recreational water users during the pontoon closure. As the largest fish market in the Southern Hemisphere, accessible by thousands of public visitors each year, the Sydney Fish Market is committed to keeping the community up to date with key stages of the redevelopment that will turn it into a facility to cutting edge technology and attraction, reinforcing the pride of the Australian seafood industry.
