Why use the SunSmart widget?

UV radiation cannot be seen or feltExternal Website.. It is not like the sun’s light which we see, or the sun’s warmth (infrared radiation) which we feel. This means it can be damaging to our skin without us knowing.

The free SunSmart widget takes away the guesswork when it comes to knowing UV levels. It uses forecast information from the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM)External Website. and live UV data from the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA)External Website. to provide sun protection times for more than 600 locations across Australia.
