To help you manage your asthma and allergies we encourage the use of pollen monitoring to ensure you are prepared.
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.
AirRater’s pollen network provides daily pollen counts for select sites across Australia. Data is collected on over 25 native and introduced pollen types so you can find out what’s in flower now and see how different pollen species might be affecting your symptoms.
AirRater has pollen count monitors in the following locations which feed directly into the AirRater app:
- Tasmania – Sandy Bay
- Tasmania – Launceston
- the ACT (at the Australian National University)
- NSW via Sydney Pollen (at Campbelltown)
AirSmart – The Australian App for Air Quality
Like pollen, air pollution in the air around you, including chemicals, smoke and dust, can get into your lungs and affect your health and how you live your life. While there is no safe level of exposure to air pollution for anyone, some people are more sensitive to air pollution than others.
We want all Australians to become AirSmart. Being AirSmart means you have the right information in the palm of your hand to understand what your local air quality is like, how it affects your health, and when to avoid it. These simple steps can go a long way towards your health and wellbeing.
AirSmart is a proud initiative of Asthma Australia.
