Places nearby Turramurra


Turramurra is one of Sydney's sylvan and well-heeled Upper North Shore suburbs where attractive homes sit snugly in groves of trees separated by well-tended gardens and lawns. Navigate your way down Bobbin Head Road, along which the bowls club lies, and you'll find yourself in the vast expanses of the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park which is dissected by Cowan Creek and its tributaries - Smith Creek and Coal and Candle Creek - and where bushwalking and picnicking are popular pastimes. The walking trails erupt in vibrant colour when the wildflowers bloom in spring. The national park was established in 1894 and contains more than 14,600ha within its rugged boundaries. Small boats can be hired at the delightfully-named village of Bobbin Head and Appletree Bay for a spot of fishing and exploring the verdant banks of the creeks. There's a visitors centre, a wildlife centre and a koala reserve along the Ku-ring-gai Chase Road which loops through the park.

Turramurra: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Rose Seidler House

Rose Seidler House, built between 1948 and 1950, is one of the most uncompromising modernist houses in Australia. Nestled in natural bushland, the house has panoramic views of Ku-ring-gai National Park from its glass walls and sun filled deck.

Restored to its 1950s scheme, Rose Seidler House incorporates the modernist features of open planning, minimal colour scheme, mod cons, appliances and labour saving devices that were new to Australia. Its original furniture is one of the most important post war design collections in Australia.

Rose Seidler House was the first commission for internationally renowned architect Harry Seidler. He came to Australia from New York expressly to build the house for his parents Rose and Max, who lived there until 1967. Awarded the Sulman Medal in 1951, it has been a very influential house, stimulating much social comment and intellectual debate.

Lisgar Gardens

Lisgar Gardens covers an area of 2.4 hectares (six acres).

The site was originally purchased in 1917 by Max Cotton (1887 to 1967) from his brother Leo, specifically for the purpose of creating the gardens. In 1967, Hornsby Shire Council purchased the property, naming it Lisgar Gardens.

Built on a steep hillside, the gardens' different levels were created by the construction of sandstone block walls. By 1950, the gardens were planted with rhododendrons, azaleas, gardenias and other exotics in harmony with native trees and ferns, highlighting the seventy two varieties of camellias.

Some of the original camellias still exist in the gardens today and are now over fifty years old. The gardens now boast over ninety varieties of camellias, a covered pavilion for weddings and other celebrations, a shade house containing the fish ponds, a gazebo, three waterfalls, informal lawn areas, picnic tables, and a rainforest walk.
