Turriff is a rural locality on the Sunraysia Highway and the railway to Mildura in north-west Victoria. The nearest town is Ouyen, about 45 km northwards.

Turriff came about from the creation of a stopping place on the railway line (1903), initially named Gorya. The name was easily confused with another, and it was changed to Turriff in 1906; John Turriff was the manager at the Lake Coorong pastoral holding at Lascelles, to the south-west.
