Settlement of the area dates from 1839, with land used mainly for farming and vineyards. Significant development occurred from the post-war years, with rapid growth during the 1960s and 1970s. The population declined slightly during the 1990s, and then was relatively stable between 2001 and 2011, a result of few new dwellings being added and a decline in the average number of persons living in each dwelling.
Reynella is a predominantly residential area, with some rural areas in the north-west.
Major features of the area include George Street Reserve, Jessamine Avenue Reserve, Pembroke Drive Reserve, Robertson Street Reserve and one school.
