A NSW Government website


  • News: The NSW Government is developing a dedicated air quality website, that presents air quality data and information that is fit-for-purpose, easy-to-understand and works well on desktop and mobile devices.
    We invite you to try our first release or find out more.
  • Smoke from hazard reduction burns may impact air quality in your area. Please monitor Fires Near Me by the RFS for the location of HRBs.
  • Due to essential COVID-19 restrictions, data may not be available from some stations where instruments need servicing from multiple staff members working in close contact. These will be serviced when safe to do so.
  • Live data is always reported in Standard Time (AEST).
