"Sydney's Best Kept Secret"

As a resident of Lugarno for the past 12 years, I can certainly tell you that it's a beautiful place to live. The suburb enjoys glorious views of the river (and all it's adjoining inlets), has beautiful parks and scenery all around, and has an unrepeatable village atmosphere that rivals inner city living. Lugarno offers a peaceful lifestyle that escapes the rat-race of the city, yet is within easy reach of public transport and only a 30 min drive to the CBD. There is practically no crime, no pollution and the area offers great tranquillity with lush greenery all around.

Lugarno offers a variety of housing including a small selection of villas and townhouse, waterfront apartments, small suburban cottages, large family homes & multi-million dollar luxury waterfronts. Over the past few years the area has undergone change as the original settlers of the suburb have moved on and new younger families are moving in. As a result, hundreds of thousands of dollars have been spent on renovations and new builds that both complement the area and have boosted the appearance of the beautiful leafy streets.

Overall Lugarno is a fantastic place to live and serves as a great investment for your future.

"Leafy, quiet and great for young families"

I have lived here for 5 years and love the peaceful lifestyle. It is not too far from the city but far enough to feel as though you are out of it and nice to relax here on the weekend. It is a place where I want to raise my son with a backyard he can play in and parks nearby. It has a village feel and my only wish is that more nice restaurants and shops would open up in the area.
