End of season 2016-2017

Hello Brisbanepollen users,

We are at the end of our first season of the daily pollen count service for Brisbane. The service will recommence November 1, 2017.

Compared to previous pollen studies in Brisbane by others (Green et al. Int J Biometeorol 48 (4), 172-178. 2004), this year has had high levels of grass pollen in the air.

Happy Christmas. We'll resume January 3 2017

Hello BrisbanePollen users,

This is the first year we have provided this pollen counting service for you and we hope its useful.

Brisbane has mainly subtropical grasses and these are producing pollen at high levels now. Be vigilent with your hay fever medications and if you have asthma USE your preventer.

We will continue to collect pollen over Christmas but will start loading information to the App again from January 3 onwards.

The grass pollen season is likely to continue throughout summer so stay tuned next year.

Seasons greetings for BrisbanePollen
