We have a network of ultraviolet radiation (UV) detectors in cities around Australia. The UV data is collected continuously by detectors that respond to UV in a manner similar to human skin and updated in this chart every minute.

Use the chart above to find out what the UV index is at our measurement sites and what time the UV index will be at its highest.

Our charts use the location settings on your device or browser to display information from your nearest location. Select 'Make this my location' if you would like to save your location for future reference. The 'Make this my location' feature uses cookies that are saved to your device. Select 'Clear my location' if you would like to clear your default location. The cookie will be deleted from your device when you select 'Clear my location'. Depending on your browser you may need to refresh you cache for the upgrade to take effect.

A guide on how to use the UV radiation index charts explains the features of the chart above.
