The Melbourne Pollen App provides Victorians with pollen forecasts generated using real-world pollen count data collected from our statewide network of monitoring sites.
You can use the Melbourne Pollen App to track your hay fever symptoms to figure out which pollen types are triggering your symptoms. Our notification system can alert you when grass pollen levels in your area are high, helping you plan your activities.
Since the November 2016 thunderstorm asthma event, Melbourne Pollen has worked closely with the Victorian Department of Health and Bureau of Meteorology to develop and implement a Thunderstorm Asthma forecast system to minimize the impact that any future epidemic thunderstorm asthma events may have on the community and the Victorian health system. Our notification system can alert you to forecasts of thunderstorm asthma in your area.
Melbourne Pollen also conducts research aimed at better understanding the health impacts of the different types of pollen in our air. Completing the survey regularly helps us with this important work.
