How many pollen counting sites are there in Victoria?

Prior to the 2017 grass pollen season there were three pollen traps operating in Victoria - in Parkville, Burwood and Waurn Ponds (Geelong).

The Victorian government has provided additional investment to expand the pollen monitoring network in Victoria by adding five pollen traps at the following locations:


Creswick (near Ballarat)


Dookie (near Shepparton)

Churchill (near Morwell)

Eight pollen traps across Victoria will be operating and supporting the verification and refinement of the epidemic thunderstorm asthma forecasting model, by providing a more detailed understanding of pollen levels and the spread/movement of pollen across the state.
