The Villages of Mt Dandenong Association is the local business group for the Villages on the ridge of Mount Dandenong. Run by volunteers from local businesses and funded by our membership fees and advertising, we are working to promote the Dandenong Ranges and ensure our villages are being represented with Council and Regional Tourism. Membership numbers from local businesses ensure we have a unified collective voice.
The advertising materials we produce promote the uniqueness of our Villages both locally and across Victoria, allowing all of our businesses the opportunity of meaningful exposure. The Association is not-for-profit and all money earned by the Association goes towards promotional materials.
You do not need to be a Villages Member to advertise with us, but if you are in our membership catchment area and join, you will receive discounts. Our Membership catchment area is Olinda, Sassafras, Mt Dandenong, Kalorama, Ferny Creek, Tremont, Sherbooke and Kallista.
If you are outside our membership area but would like to advertise please go to www.thevillages.com.au/advertise
