Interested in the future of Tecoma? Would you like to help with improving life in the Hills? Need help or advice pertaining to a development proposal?


Please contact our Membership Secretary

What began as an idea to turn Tecoma from a town that one drives through into a positive Hills destination is slowly coming to fruition with plans well underway for a Festival in 12 months time. 

Planned for November 7th 2015, the Destination Tecoma Festival will draw thousands of visitors to Tecoma to celebrate our unique township and very special community. 


Art, Recycled and Upcycled Fashion, Abundant Food, Kid’s Faire, Pony Rides, Fabulous Hill’s Craft, Irish Dance, Contemporary Dance and the Tecoma Floral Carpet are all planned for this Celebration of Community.


Organisers are now reaching out to Community Groups and businesses who would like to participate in or support Destination Tecoma. A golden opportunity to bring your name before thousands of Hills locals and visitors. Sponsorship opportunities are also available, providing mutual benefits.


There are many people in our community whose voice isn’t heard and whose work on our behalf isn’t recognised as it should be. Destination Tecoma plans to change this situation. Although the festival is the flagship event, Destination Tecoma has other exciting events planned over the next 12 months including an exciting new youth scheme.

TVAG AGM

The Tecoma Village Action Group comprises residents living in the area of Tecoma who wish to contribute to the growth of and preservation of the characteristics of our township that draw people to live in this wonderful area of the Dandenong Ranges.


TVAG is a member of the Shire of Yarra Ranges Townships Groups Network and as such represents Tecoma to the Shire of Yarra Ranges. Through this link we are able to apply to Council for funding of Community Projects and be instrumental in developing “Tecoma’s Future”.


TVAG is an Incorporated Association that supports other organisations and events in the region of Tecoma, such as The Hills Food Frontier (FLAME Festival, Community Garden Pathway); Destination Tecoma (see below), and art organisations such as the Tiffaney Bishop Collective and FATSpace.


TVAG is often contacted by residents with concerns about development issues. Through its contacts and experience, TVAG has been able to draw these concerns to the wider community and provide information and support for these concerns. TVAG has supported residents in their concerns all the way to Council and VCAT.


TVAG is an incorporated association of volunteers, members of the community who volunteer their time and experience to represent Tecoma. To be truly representative though, TVAG requires your support through membership and contribution to community discussions.
