North Turramurra is a suburb on the Upper North Shore of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Turramurra is located 20 kilometres north-west of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of Ku-ring-gai Council.
North Turramurra is home to the sphinx war memorial. This 1.5 m high replica of the Great Sphinx of Egypt was carved out of sandstone in the 1920s by a returned soldier, in memory of fallen comrades. The suburb is a popular starting point for many bush walkers as it has easy access to Bobbin Head, the upper reaches of Cowan Creek and St Ives Chase. North Turramurra is also the site of an official Bureau of Meteorology rainfall observation station.
North Turramurra lies on a narrow spur between two creeks (Lovers Jump Creek and Cowan Creek) that flow eventually to the sea through the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park on the northern outskirts of the city. The heavily forested valleys pose a bush-fire threat each summer, but residents are blessed with common sightings of a wide variety of peculiar and beautiful native wildlife. This is a suburb where you can often see wallabies hopping around backyards.
There is a shopping village in North Turramurra on Bobbin Head Road which has an IGA supermarket, bakery, restaurants, post office, newsagent and other facilities.
North Turramurra has tropical summers (humid a warm) and Cool-Cold Winters North Turramurra hasn't been Below Freezing Point for years and the last recorded snow fall was in 1836.
