Turrella is located 11 km south of the Sydney’s central business district. Turrella is a mostly residential area. Some light industrial developments are located around Turrella railway station and north along the railway line.

Turrella is an Aboriginal word meaning 'reeds growing in water'. The name was not officially applied to the district until after the opening of the East Hills Railway Line in 1931.

Turrella is bounded by the Wolli Creek in the north, generally by Thompson Street in the east, generally by Bonar Street, Hirst Street, Denison Street, Dowling Street and Lorraine Avenue in the south and George Street and a line running between Princes Street and Sackville Street in the west.
