Tecoma railway station is located on the Belgrave line in Victoria, Australia. It serves the eastern Melbourne suburb of Tecoma opening on 1 February 1924.[1]

In 2011/12 it was the 3rd least used station on Melbourne's metropolitan network, with 69,000 passenger movements.[2]

The station was originally on the Upper Ferntree Gully - Gembrook narrow gauge line. It along with the rest of the line closed on 30 April 1954, reopening on 19 February 1962 when the line as far as Belgrave was converted to broad gauge.[1]

The platform was used in a short cameo in the 2012 telemovie Underground: The Julian Assange Story and Metlink signs and tactiles are visible in the film.
