"Quiet with water views and so close to the city."

I have lived in Lutana for over 12 years. Central to everything with fantastic water and mountain views.More reasonably priced than some inner suburbs A quiet area with mostly older residents and a few singles and families. I have always felt safe living in Lutana and would reccomend this suburb to live to most people.

"Quiet, trendy and so close to the city"

Lutana is a lovely and quiet suburb with a friendly community. You are in the city and on the the bridge so quickly without getting stuck on any roads or intersections with long waits at traffic lights. Lutana used to be one of Hobart's best kept secrets. Not suprisingly, it has become very popular in the last couple of years as. Lutana boasts beautifully renovated period homes and lush gardens.

"An affordable suburb close to the city"

We have lived in Lutana for nearly 4 years. It is a nice friendly and safe neighbourhood. We have two dogs and like the areas that we can exercise them.
It is ideally located close to the city and northern suburbs. Public Transport it good during the day but no so regular on Sundays and at night.
We have gorgeous mountain and water views from our house. Our neighbours are mostly older couples but there seems to be more young families moving to the area. We don't have children yet so we don't know much about the schools or daycare.

"A nice little suburb"

I would have to say that Lutana in my experience is a quiet enjoyable place to live. There is a large proportion of elderly retirees and young families in the area. I feel safe and comfortable and my children play in the street with other children. Its cheap, very close to the city and moonah for shopping. And the view of the sunsetting behind the mountain is wonderful. A good little suburb all round.
