Victoria’s air was generally clean in 2005. While the air quality objectives were met for most pollutants, particle pollution continues to be an issue needing attention. Air quality was typically poorer on days when emissions were trapped in calm, highly stable air or when strong winds transported dust picked up from the ground.
In an international context Melbourne's air quality (compared to similar urban centres) remains relatively good. There has been little change in air quality over the last decade despite increasing pressures such as population growth.
