Is your asthma made worse by allergens in the air?

Our local AusPollen Apps provide daily levels of pollen in the air.

To help us evaluate the usefulness of our Apps and how we can improve this service, we invite you to complete a short questionnaire before and after the pollen season.

This research will help us site future pollen count stations and determine whether there are local triggers that make hay fever and asthma worse.

Best regards,

The AusPollen team.

Victorian SoE recommends an improved pollen monitoring network


Every five years Victoria's Commissioner for Environmental Sustainability produces an environmental report card that measures the health of Victoria’s environment and highlights areas for future focus.

The report also makes recommendations to government where it finds a need for improvement.

The 2018 Victorian State of the Environment report has just been released. You can download a copy of the report here.

One of the 20 recommendations in the report is for the establishment of a contemporary pollen monitoring network to enable the Victorian community to access information on pollen levels in the air in a timely manner.

Please download and explore the report for further information on this and other initiatives that will benefit Victoria’s environment and communities for many years to come.
