about our village

Welcome

Based in Wallan, a semi-rural town on the urban fringe north of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, Transition Village Wallan is a local non-profit organisation working towards whole community change to support a safe, sustainable and connected way of life for all members of our community.

Transition Village Wallan is embarking on a project to build a village of Tiny Houses, utilising sustainable living and design practices, for people experiencing (or at risk of) homelessness in and around Wallan.
