Lutwyche, a residential suburb on Lutwyche Road, immediately south of Kedron Brook, is five km north of central Brisbane. It was named after Alfred Lutwyche, a judge of the Supreme Court of New South Wales who was appointed to Moreton Bay upon Queensland being granted self-government in 1859. Lutwyche settled at Kedron Lodge, Nelson Street, Kalinga, overlooking Kedron Brook and donated land on Lutwyche Road for St Andrew's Church of England (1866).
