Turramurra Rotary Club is a group of professional and business men and women who act to give something back to the community.

Across the Rotary Avenues of Service – Youth, Community, Vocational and International – Turramurra Rotarians use their skills to lead projects in the community.

Whether it is organising a 747 Jumbo to give disadvantaged kids their first thrill of flying, helping to build a children's hospital in Sierra Leone, or co-ordinating the Salvation Army's Red Shield doorknock in the local area, we have more than 40 active projects. We are a "doing" club.

We know that the friends and colleagues we make through Rotary are critical to sustaining our activity. Having some fun, enjoying each other's company, learning from other business colleagues, and sharing passions, ideas and successes are critical ingredients to making our Club strong. Put your passions to work – why don't you join us?

History of the Rotary Club of Turramurra Inc.

The Rotary Club of Turramurra was chartered in November 1968 when Hornsby Club agreed to cede territory. Ten members of Hornsby, all being from the Turramurra/Wahroonga business community, and three members from other Rotary Clubs became part of the 27 charter members.  This unusual situation gave the new Club a flying start.

During its 44 years of service, the Club has initiated many projects - some of which have been adopted across by other Rotary Clubs Australia. A member, Don Trood, conceived the now nationally adopted Pride of Workmanship Awards which recognise exceptional service of individuals in local businessThe Club's Trees for Survival shade house project received international recognition as the best Rotary project supporting the environment.  It was taken up by over 300 Clubs.  Turramurra members were prime movers in the formation of PROBUS  clubs in Australia and New Zealand.  This organisation now has 195,000 members. Turramurra's approach to its Anti-graffiti programme has, at the request of the Government, been rolled out across NSW.

 Signature projects include the Qantas Jumbo Joy Flight for disabled and disadvantaged children (now in its 39th year), the Turramurra Youth Centre (working with Ku-ring-gai Council), the Anti-graffiti programme and more recently, the Bobbin Head Cycle Classic.  The refurbishment of Cameron Park as an adventure playground for little children was well received locally. 

Youth programmes have been an important feature for the Club.  Every year the club hosts an international exchange student and sponsors an Australian student on an overseas exchange.  The student is hosted by Rotary and other families and attends Turramurra High School.  Other programmes supporting Youth include: Rotary Youth leadership Award, a leadership week for young people with leadership potential; Rotary Youth Programme of Enrichment, a leadership program for year 10 students; National Youth Science Forum, a 12 day Science Course held in Canberra for budding scientists and Model United Nations Assembly, giving students the opportunity to understand the working of the United Nations

International projects have been strength of the Club.  The Children's Orphanage in Banda Aceh built after the Boxing Day tsunami in 2004, for which the Club raised over $1.4 million and the Children's Hospital in Bo Sierra Leone are an indication of the breadth of our challenges.

The Club was one of the first Rotary Club's to admit women as members, and elected its first female President (Pam Pritchard) in 1997.  Pam later went on to become the District's first female Governor in 2006/07.  The Club's Charter President, Bob Burnett, was District Governor in 1978/79.

The Club has won the District Governor's Shield for the best club on 4 occasions, most recently in 2011/12.
