To help you manage your asthma and allergies during this time, we encourage the use of pollen monitoring to ensure you are prepared.
Adelaide Pollen Count
The partnership between Asthma Australia, the University of Adelaide, and the AusPollen Aeroallergen Collaboration Network headed up by the Queensland University of Technology.
Adelaide Pollen Count samples are collected each day at 9 am, counted in the laboratory, and reported daily at 11 am.
Data provided by The University of Adelaide Pollen Monitoring Site managed by WayCott and affiliated with AusPollen Aerobiology Collaboration Network.
The AusPollen pollen forecast monitors levels of airborne grass pollen across the ACT, New South Wales, Queensland , Victoria, and Tasmania and provides allergy and asthma patients with accurate, relevant, localised information on pollen counts.
Visit their website here for relevant information in your state/territory, or take a look at the pollen count update below, noting that some states start monitoring in different months due to seasonal changes in that particular state.
