New names planned for Turramurra creeks

Published on 7 October 2020

The public are invited to comment on two new names proposed for creeks running through Turramurra.

The Geographical Names Board is seeking community feedback on a proposal by a Ku-ring-gai resident to name two local creeks.

The Geographical Names Board is a state government authority responsible for approving the names of suburbs, streets, sub-divisions and waterways such as creeks.

Following Council endorsement, the new names proposed for the creeks in Twin Creeks Reserve Turramurra are Water Dragon Creek and Peppermint Creek.

Water Dragon Creek is a tributary of Lane Cove River starting at Holmes Street, and flowing in a south-westerly direction through Twin Creeks Reserve to the Lane Cove River in South Turramurra. The proposed name is in recognition of the colony of Eastern Water Dragons that live in and along the waterway.

Peppermint Creek starts at Mitchell Crescent, Warrawee and flows in a south-westerly direction to join the proposed Water Dragon Creek at South Turramurra. The name recognises the Peppermint Gums which are common along the creek.
