Sydney Fish Market’s annual 36-Hour Seafood Marathon is on again in 2020.

Retailers will be open for 36 hours from 5am, Wednesday 23 December right through to 5pm Christmas Eve.

We have everything you need this festive season, including fresh seafood, premium meats, fresh fruit and veg, gourmet deli produce, last minute kitchenware gifts and so much more. Plus, our retailers have a variety of home delivery options, for added convenience.

While the main Sydney Fish Market car park will be closed to the general public to assist with social distancing measures, alternative parking will be available at the Sydney Secondary College and the Fig & Wattle council site.

Sydney Fish Market is open every day throughout the festive period, aside from Christmas day.

Read on for everything you need to know to plan your visit!


Covid Safe

The Sydney Fish Market 36-Hour Seafood Marathon is a 25-year long tradition, however, this has been a year like no other, and our first priority is the safety of our customers and staff.

Whilst we expect visitation to be lower this year, we’ve been consulting with NSW Police and NSW Health to implement an extensive COVID-safe event management plan which will allow us to welcome 100,000 visitors across the course of the 36 hours - safely.

There will be a single point of entry to the site, allowing management of registration (via QR code) and temperature testing, as well as socially distanced queuing (each visitor/group must remain 1.5m apart).

Visitors will need to observe social distancing at all times, including when inside their chosen retailer/s, and are asked to follow the instructions of staff.

Most of all, bring plenty of Christmas cheer!


Parking

Remember to leave extra time for your visit, as wait times may be increased this year.

If you are coming by car, please note that the main Sydney Fish Market car park will be closed (aside from disabled parking). Alternative car parking will be available at Sydney Secondary College (entrance on Pyrmont Bridge Rd), and the Fig & Wattle council site (Opposite Wentworth Park, entrance on Fig Street).

Parking will be charged at a flat rate of $5.


Access to Site

There will be single point of entry to the site, accessable from the corner of Bank Street and Pyrmont Bridge Road, as well as opposite the Fish Market Light Rail entry/exit on Bank Street. There will be signage and COVID Marshals stationed to direct you here from the car parks.

This single point of entry will allow management of registration (via QR code) and temperature testing, as well as socially distanced queuing (each visitor/group 1.5m apart). Masks are strongly encouraged.

If you are commuting via public transport, you can catch the Sydney Light Rail to the Fish Market stop, or use bus services 501 and 389, which regularly depart from the city. For route and timetable information visit www.transportnsw.info.

For the duration of the marathon, the Pontoon will be closed.


Online Ordering

Our retailers offer a variety of home delivery options. If you’d rather avoid the (socially distanced) crowds, order your Christmas spread online and have our retailers deliver it to your door!

Most retailers are taking Christmas orders already – so if you like to get organised early, place your order today.


Plan Your Visit

Please leave extra time for your visit this year, as wait times may be extended due to social distancing measures. While we know the Seafood Marathon is a Christmas tradition for many families, we ask that you reduce your group size wherever possible.
