Ultraviolet radiation index

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 this chart 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.

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

We are currently experiencing issues receiving data for our Canberra location. Apologies for any inconvenience.
