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

Useful but careful when migrating devices
Very useful for Melbournians who all become a sneezing wheezing mess from late September to early December as the grass pollens descend on the city. Be aware that there seems to be a big of you register on one device then migrate to another device - you can’t participate in the survey anymore (but can still get reports)

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.
