I have received a few emails from AWCL readers asking for must-visit places when in Sydney/Australia. I have written about a couple of places I've visited in Australia in the past years so I guess the ones who have only known AWCL recently, they might have missed these blog posts. Now that my Mom's here and we'll be visiting a few places in Sydney, I will share each of our day-out here on the blog.
Whenever my parents visit us, their only goals are to spend time with family, take leisurely walks around Sydney and eat good food as often as they could. So for my Mom's visit this year, we make sure we take her to favourite places and let her enjoy her favourite food.
Our first day-out was at Sydney Fish Market. We were blessed with wonderful weather. The sun shone brightly but it was breezy so we ate by the wharf and enjoyed some fresh seafood.
Why We Come Here?
The Sydney Fish Market is a seafood lover's haven. Sydneysiders and tourists flock this place to have a taste of Australia's freshest seafood produce. We come here to indulge in the freshest and afford seafood in the city and enjoy a view of the wharf.
Best Time To Visit:
Weekdays and early mornings. There are lots of people during weekends and public holidays.

Seafood Platter for two for me and my Mom included 2 Battered Barramundi Fish, 2 Oysters Kilpatrick, 4 Battered Prawns and Chips.
Be mindful of your food when you're at the wharf as these Seagulls will steal your food with their quick demeanour. Here they are waiting for people to throw some food at them.Grateful that some of our friends took the day off and have lunch with us.
It was a wonderful day to be at the wharf. After we ate, we just sat there, talked and relaxed for the next hour.
