Reynell is an electoral district of the House of Assembly in the Australian state of South Australia. It is named after John Reynell, a leading force in the founding of the Agricultural and Horticultural Society of South Australia and noted 19th-century grape farmer and vineyard owner in the area. Reynell is a 30 km² urban residential and industrial electorate in Adelaide's far south. It includes the suburbs of Christie Downs, Lonsdale, Morphett Vale and O'Sullivan Beach, as well as part of Christies Beach.
Reynell was created for the 1993 State election, as a marginal Australian Labor Party seat, but was won by Julie Greig for the Liberal Party in a landslide following the collapse of the State Bank of South Australia. It was reclaimed for Labor at the 1997 election by Gay Thompson. Labor's Katrine Hildyard succeeded her at the 2014 election.
