We saw where they auction the fresh catch very early every morning. There are numerous vendors selling every kind of fresh fish available in the area. We found it very interesting.

The person did not give us our food after we paid for it. We lost more than 40 dollars AUD. The staffs are not friendly.

Everything sold here is just so fresh. I love the huge oysters, sashimi and scampi. Many choices here, so be careful not to over order.

I'm not sure if they serve fresh fish at that time as we went on a Sunday evening early an only the Chinese restaurant was open. But they do have breakfast cafes there.
