Tecoma is a suburb in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Its Local Government Area is the Shire of Yarra Ranges.

The suburb is named after the shrub that grew in the area when the need was identified for a railway station for the timber mill that occupied the site where Tecoma Primary School now stands. The Post Office opened on 7 January 1929, closing in 1976. Citation

Tecoma is a small town, nestled between Belgrave and Upwey and running up to its favourite and most popular asset, Sherbrooke Forest.

Tecoma is a small suburb; a licensed milk bar, video outlet, fish'n'chip shop, a bakery, a second hand clothes shop and a handful of art and craft shops are along the main road, Burwood Highway, which leads straight up from Melbourne. Tecoma Primary School is located across the road from the strip of shops.
Tecoma station is the second-last railway station on the Belgrave line, and is one of a relatively few stations in Melbourne's metropolitan electric rail network to have only one platform.

The homes in Tecoma are mainly in residential bushland, which attracts numerous native birds of many kinds.

Together with its neighbouring township Upwey Tecoma has an Australian Rules football team (Upwey-Tecoma) competing in the Yarra Valley Mountain District Football League.Citation | last = Full Points Footy | title = Upwey-Tecoma| url = http://www.fullpointsfooty.net/Upwey-Tecoma.htm | accessdate = 2008-07-25 ]
