Sydney Fish Market posts site access changes for recreational boating visitors


Sydney Fish Market’s (SFM) redevelopment is underway, with on-water works taking place to upgrade the site’s facilities on Blackwattle Bay.

The 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 200 metres 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.

The works are scheduled for completion in mid-late November, at which point the pontoon will reopen and access to the market via the harbour will be reinstated for recreational vessels.
