Melbourne Pollen Count & Forecast; School of BioSciences, Uni. of Melbourne.

The Melbourne Pollen Count App provides real-world pollen count data during the Melbourne grass pollen season (October 1 to December 31) as generated by the School of Botany at the University of Melbourne, Australia. It also provides a year round 7 days forecast of grass pollen levels in Melbourne. In addition, we send push notifications for high pollen forecast days and you can also help us help you by telling us how your hay fever symptoms are, which will help us better understand the relationship between the pollen count and how people feel.

What's new

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

2013-12-02 That Pine trees can suspend a lot of pollen in the air is a good confirmation from the FAQ section. I have a huge pinetree in my back yard. Every visit to this tree surrounds, I suffer from immediate and aggressive allergic reaction. Now I know for sure to stay away especially near this tree. If only an android app can emit anti allergens in the surrounds .....

2013-10-18 Last update fixed the GPS issues as promised. Great app. :) Maybe look into making the app a bit more responsive for a future update, can feel a little bit unresponsive swapping between different pages.

2018-10-28 Seems a good app, but you don't get any warnings or alerts till 11 in the morning. You should get alerts and warnings earlier, say at 9.00 or earlier. Needs fixing.
