The Grass Pollen Season is Almost Here! What are Canberrans in for this Spring?


The Canberra grass pollen season is almost upon us and we normally expect increased levels of grass pollen to appear in the first week of October and peak in November. So what are we expecting this year as we sniffle and sneeze through spring?

The Department of Archaeology and Natural History at the Australian National University in Canberra and the Health Protection Service, ACT Health, offer a service that forecasts the level of pollen in the air. The forecast alerts those who suffer from hay fever and seasonal asthma of the likelihood of being exposed to high levels of grass pollen, enabling sufferers to take preventative measures in danger periods.
