Gwambygine is located about 10 km south of York on the Beverley road.

There are toilets, tables, chairs, BBQs and a boardwalk and lookout over the Avon River.

The reserve is situated next to one of the last remaining permanent pools in the river but unfortunately water quality is generally poor and swimming is not recommended.

The reserve is part of the Avon Ascent that features places of interest upstream of the town of Northam.

The pool is important for local fauna and bird species that are found in the area include; white faced heron, little pied cormorant, great egret, grey teal, blue wrens, kookaburras, pacific black duck and sacred kingfishers. Long necked tortoise may still inhabit the pool and the odd kangaroo is sometimes seen.

It is possible for motorhomes to overnight in the reserve but parking areas are not really suitable for large vehicles or caravans.

In the south end of the reserve is a marker showing where a school once operated (1908-1947).

Gwambygine is a pleasant place to visit in all but the hottest months of the year.
