A popular spot for nature-based recreation including swimming, canoeing and fishing, as well as birdwatching, bushwalking and horse riding, the reserve is located at Yarramundi, New South Wales close to where the Nepean River changes its name to the Hawkesbury. At this point the Grose River joins the Hawkesbury. Yarramundi Reserve is divided into two sections on either side of Springwood Road adjacent to the Yarramundi Bridge.
For much of the 20th century the area was mined for its high quality building materials including sand and gravel, which continued until 1989. In 2002, Hawkesbury City Council became the Trust Manager of Yarramundi Reserve when the reserve was gazetted for public recreation and environmental protection. After some initial landscaping and restoration works, the reserve was officially opened to the public in 2007.
Navua Reserve is located across from Yarramundi Reserve on the northern bank of the Grose River.
