Take control of your allergies with accurate pollen count and forecast information.

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.

Melbourne Uni … the best

Thank you Melbourne Uni. I jumped at the chance to contribute towards your costs and believe in you as a team to come up with some amazing outcomes. We like the new app. It is simple to digest, great that you are researching, and also educating us along the journey. I look forward to watching your journey. Please so keep costs down if possible as times are a little tough in the pocket these days. Perhaps a 2 tier offer …. Standard and donors. To a better future for all sufferers of hey fever every where.

Still loving it …. Victoria’s single source of the truth.

Hey fever is cruel 20/10 for this app

I’d love to thank you for your app, I’m 47 years old girl from the south east of Melbourne and have had hey fever all my life, this app helps me everyday in hey fever season, I now know in advance what’s coming, I’m allergic to all Australian pollens, dust and dirt, I get hives, itchy eyes which makes me rub them hard and have permanent dark eyes cause I have bruised them over my life time.
I hate hey fever it’s cruel.
Thanks so much again, 20/10 for this app
Thanks regard Tracey H 😊

Such a great find

I found this app after a good search online.
My Asthma has been terrible but as I love to garden and get out I braved the elements..
But now with this app I can check pollen and grass levels.. and thunderstorm predictions.
I highly recommend it. I pay the small contribution so the Melbourne Uni team can keep up the great work they perform thank you.
