Welcome to EPA AirWatch. Our interactive map is the go-to place for air quality information in Victoria. To get the information that’s most relevant to you, we encourage you to explore the map and become familiar with its features.

When EPA measures high levels of PM2.5 particles in the air, a link to the Emergency Management Victoria (EMV) website will display at the top of the popup box. This will occur when a health category of ‘very unhealthy’, ‘hazardous’ or ‘hazardous extreme’ is triggered. These will show on EPA AirWatch as a red, orange or brown icon.
To ensure that our data is accessible for all Victorians, EPA also presents hourly air quality information in a table format.
