The Melbourne Pollen Count App provides real-world pollen count data during the Melbourne grass pollen season (October 1 to December 31) from 6 pollen counting stations from around Victoria that are run by the School of BioSciences at the University of Melbourne, Australia.

The Melbourne Pollen App also provides a year-round 7-day forecast of grass pollen levels for Melbourne and a next day forecast for Victorian country areas. We now provide a forecast for potential thunderstorm asthma events and advise users of predicted high pollen days and thunderstorm asthma using push notifications.

Our users can also help us with our research by telling us how they are feeling via our hay fever symptom survey. Information collected by the survey helps us better understand the relationship between our pollen count and how pollen is affecting the community.

What’s New

Version 1.5.2

We've refreshed the look of the App, and added 7-day forecasts at each of our pollen trap locations.

Melbourne Pollen Count

Great app! Recently diagnosed mild asthmatic and last few weeks have been challenging to say the least. This was great to check at the start of each day before stepping out, so I’m reminded to have everything with me ‘in case of’ the dreaded asthma storm. Thanks so much to the team who researched and created this for us :)

Great app!! Thank you.

This app is great as both my son and I have hay fever and we both get asthma. His more severe than mine. The app is great at forewarning so we are prepared. I share the warnings on social media if it’s an extreme warning for those that don’t have the app. Thank you for taking the time to help people. It’s greatly appreciated.

forewarned is forearmed

I love this app, it has really been super useful. The thunderstorm asthma warnings are great. The app provides me with peace of mind. Great work!

Can you make a setting that allows users to opt in to receive a daily reminder to complete the survey? I would complete the survey every day if only I remembered!
