Welcome to Lugarno Progress Association
WE WANT YOU
Welcome to the Lugarno Progress Association! We are proud of the history of our beautiful suburb and value the contribution made by LPA members over the many years that the Association has been operating.
We want to keep the Association fresh with new members, new ideas and the enthusiasm and passion that comes with different people working together in community. We have bush walks around the suburb with local historians describing the sites of Aboriginal inhabitation as well as the early settlers oyster farming and timber cutting sites. We get involved in Clean Up Australia Day and National Tree Planting Day to mention just a few opportunities to beautify Lugarno.
Our monthly meetings are held on the first Monday evening of the month unless it happens to be a public holiday when it is held on the second Monday. Look for the banner displayed near the Chivers Hill shopping centre to remind you of the next meeting. We have a variety of guest speakers coming along to keep us informed about various topics. Come along as a visitor or join the Association so you can vote on resolutions. Either way you’ll meet some of the locals.
Please feel free to talk to some of the Committee members about things you’d like to be raised at meetings or to offer whatever skills you have to the running of the Association. There are many things we’d like to do around Lugarno, but we need the expertise of the locals to help!

LUGARNO HISTORICAL PHOTO - BURGER BAR -Have you checked out the historical photo in the Local Burger Bar? Perhaps you can locate your house or your street from 1970's. Evatt Park looks a bit different too. Thanks to the Burger Bar (next to the Nail shop) in Lugarno for agreeing to hang the beautifully framed picture in the window (on loan from the Lugarno Progress Association as part of its historic project).
