This small reserve in Balmain East runs south along the foreshore adjacent to the ferry wharf. It presents some good vantage points to relax and look at the harbour.

Looking towards North Sydney.
The Harbour Control Tower and Barangaroo Point are seen across the water from the reserve, with the Sydney Harbour Bridge beyond.
Illoura is an Aboriginal word meaning 'a pleasant place' or 'a good camping ground with plenty of food'. There may not be food here these days, but you will find shops along Darling Street if you walk up the hill. Julie pointed out in the comments below, its a steep climb, so you may want to catch a bus up from the wharf.
Anzac bridge can be seen in the distance in the photo below, taken at the southern end of the reserve.
