Based on Sydney’s North Shore, Club Turramurra is a non-denominational friendship club for single men and women over 50. The Club was established in 1978 with a view to initiating social activities, developing friendships and contributing to the life of the community.
Thirty-five years later, while the type of activity has become less formal (outings, dinners, rock and roll classes rather than formal dinner dances) those ideals still remain the primary objectives of Club T.
Club Turramurra is not a dating club and while some members have met their life partners at our meetings, this has been by accident rather than design. Many more of our members have forged friendships that have endured over the years.
Our programs, which are published in a bi – monthly newsletter, are designed to appeal to the wide variety of tastes and interests of our members and regularly include:
Theatre Subscriptions to Glen St Theatre and Pymble Players
Restaurant dining and home cooked meals
Walks and sightseeing
Movies and lunches
Visits to Festivals
Arts related activities (Sculpture by the Sea, Arcadian Artists, Concerts)
Activities are usually centred in and around the city and suburbs. In addition, there is a monthly general meeting, which takes place at Turramurra and features a guest speaker followed by further opportunities for members to socialise.
The most accessible C/L club in Sydney is the Kuring-Gai Model Flying Club who have a magnificent dedicated flying field at St. Ives Showground past the St. Ives shopping centre and near Sydney’s northern beaches. K.M.F.C. has an official flying session most Saturday mornings and it often extends well into the afternoon. People often fly there on Sundays as well, and occasionally during the week. Visitors are most welcome and the club runs beginners days several times a year. KMFC also runs several Stunt, Combat and Team Racing Competitions each year. See the CLAS Competition Calendar for the dates. The club also runs a Xmas Party/Flying day in December each year. Past members are particularly welcome.
The Probus Club of Turramurra was founded in 1995, and now has around 100 members, the limit set by Resolution of the Club.
It is not a political, sectarian or fund-raising organisation and its main objective is to promote good fellowship.
Membership is open to retired and semi-retired men only, but partners are always welcome at meetings and events.
The Club meets at Turramurra Bowling Club, Bobbin Head Road, Turramurra on the third Friday of every month, except January
We are an official Toastmasters International club which meets at 7:30pm on the first and third Wednesdays each month. Centrally located in Turramurra we service the Ku-ring-gai, North Shore, Northern Suburbs and Hornsby areas. Our club has around 30 members from many walks of life and age groups from 18 to 85. We also have a good mix of experienced, intermediate and new Toastmasters. Turramurra Toastmasters Club is considered a dynamic club which has won awards for it’s service to our members.
