A perfect way to spend a few lunch time hours is to get yourself over to the Sydney Fish Market. From there it's up to you which beer you want to pair your choice of fish n' chips with. Whatever you choose, you won't go wrong. Then after you're done stuffing your face with beer and seafood, be sure to waddle yourself around and take in the rest of the sights of the world's 2nd largest working fish market (Japan has the first).

Here is my suggested course of action for your afternoon at the fish market . . .
Of course first you need to get there. If you're staying around the darling harbor area, then just walk yourself over to the market. It'll probably take you about 15 minutes and is a great walk on a beautiful day. It's located on Bank Street in Pyrmont NSW 2009.
Once inside, you can pick from a range of menu items. I chose the catch of the day which was the Blue Eye Cod.
Then choose your seats at either the outside deck . . .
Or under the palm trees.
Once you've had your fill of the daily catch and/or cat nap under the palms, get your lazy self up and take a stroll through the fish market itself. You can stop at a number of small markets and pick up an assortment of seafood to take home, all fresh off the boats.
