I believe the phrase you are looking for is turning point. M-W

a time when an important change happens

The Collins dictionary shows a few alternatives that I like, such as "crossroads":

crossroads, critical moment, decisive moment, change, crisis, crux, moment of truth, point of no return, moment of decision, climacteric, tipping point

A google search for turning point synonym shows "landmark" amongst other options - which I quite like, depending on context.

I also like "watershed", see M-W.
