The area was referred to as Eastern Road until the new name was adopted when the railway station was built in 1890.

It’s a wonderfully leafy, relaxed place to call home, blessed with large houses, generous blocks and lush gardens, making it highly sought after by families. A recreational playground, it boasts 14 parks, including the beautiful Turramurra Memorial Park, a multi-purpose sports facility with cricket nets, an athletics track, tennis courts, soccer/rugby field, a playground and clubhouse.

The neighbouring suburbs of North Turramurra and South Turramurra are bordered by Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park and the Lane Cove National Park respectively, providing magical waterways, bushwalks and picnicking spots to explore.

A number of multicultural restaurants, cafes and takeaways are dotted around this hub, including the locals’ favourite haunt Kipling’s Garage Bar, a lively industrial chic venue in a former garage serving inventive tapas and craft beer.

There’s also a local shopping village on the east side of Turramurra known as the Eastern Road shops where you’ll find another IGA, bottle shop, grocer, the much-loved Pottery Green Bakers and more.

Located on Kissing Point Road and serving the Sydney Sikh community, the Guru Nanak Gurudwara Turramurra Sikh Temple is a local landmark, with its ornate interiors and leafy setting.
