Lugarno is a suburb in southern Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. The common misconception is that Lugarno is a part of the Surtherland Shire; however, Lugarno is located in the local government area of the Georges River Council, 23 kilometres south of the Sydney central business district and is part of the St George area.
Situated on the northern bank of the Georges River, Lugarno is known for its large areas of bushland. Peakhurst and Peakhurst Heights, to the north, are the only adjacent suburbs. Nearby suburbs include Alfords Point, Illawong (on the other side of the Georges River), Padstow Heights (on the other side of Salt Pan Creek) and Oatley (on the other side of Lime Kiln Bay).
Lugarno was named after Lake Lugano, Switzerland by surveyors Major Sir Thomas Livingstone Mitchell (1792-1855) and William Govett (1807-1848) in 1843. An extra ‘r’ was added for the suburb name. Thomas Lawrence was granted 0.49 km2 of land in 1831, on the western side of the peninsula near Salt Pan Creek. Land grants to the east and north were made in 1856 to T.G.Lee with 0.46 km2, Frewin Sleath with 180,000 m2, John Lushy with 41 acres 170,000 m2 and J.P. Henning with 160,000 m2.
The whole area between Arncliffe and Lugarno was originally heavily timbered. Illawarra Road was built by convicts in 1841 and it ran through Gannon’s Forest, down to the Georges River. The road from Arncliffe was later known as Gannon’s Forest Road and today is known as Forest Road. The name has been retained in Old Illawarra Road, over the river in Menai and Lucas Heights.
A punt operated from Lugarno across the river from 1843. An established ferry serviced the area from 1887 to 1974, closing with the opening of the Alfords Point Bridge. The suburb was developed into mainly residential in the 1960s when land was released for home sites.
Lugarno suffered critical fire outbreaks during the Ash Wednesday bushfires of 1983, the 1996 bushfires and the Christmas 2001/Summer 2002 bushfires.
Lugarno is home of Nazia from Nova.
