Meetings commence promptly at 6.45pm and conclude around 8.15pm. At most meetings, we have a guest speaker who talks about an area of vocational or community interest. Meetings also include brief announcements about projects and activities – and we have some fun!
If you would like to attend a meeting, or if you are a visiting Rotarian, please contact us before 10.00am on Monday. Our dinner charge is $35 – we will waive this for potential members attending for the first time!

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 Turramurra Rotary
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 business.
The 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 PROBUSclubs 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.
