The authentic new Sydney Fish Market which will sit at the heart of a revitalised Blackwattle Bay and return inaccessible parts of the Harbour foreshore to the community.
The NSW Government is delivering an authentic new Sydney Fish Market which will sit at the heart of a revitalised Blackwattle Bay and return inaccessible parts of the Harbour foreshore to the community.
The project will modernise and improve the much-loved Sydney Fish Market, while retaining its authenticity to create a world-class cultural icon that attracts locals and showcases our fresh seafood and beautiful city to the world.
Relocating the current Fish Market to the head of Blackwattle Bay will unlock an incredible opportunity on the current fish market site to deliver a vibrant, sustainable place that is connected to Sydney’s waterfront.
Infrastructure NSW, on behalf of the NSW Government, has submitted two associated State Significant Development Applications (DA) to the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE) for assessment:

A masterplan is being developed for the current fish market site based on the principles that were developed with the community through the The Bays Precinct Sydney Transformation Plan and further consultation in 2017. The Blackwattle Bay masterplan will consider design options to deliver community facilities, open space, a promenade, pedestrian and cycling access as well as new homes, shops and jobs. We will continue to work with the community as this project progresses.
Public exhibition on the DAs closed on Wednesday 13 November. DPIE is currently reviewing the responses submitted during the exhibition period. Comments raised in the submissions will be summarised in a Response to Submissions Report. Infrastructure NSW will consider the issues raised and may make changes to the project as a result of the submissions. The Minister for Planning and Public Spaces will then determine whether to approve the DAs.
