Discover the impact of cancer in your suburb or town using the cutting-edge Australian Cancer Atlas.


The interactive digital cancer atlas shows geographical patterns in cancer incidence and survival rates across Australia based on where people live. Twenty of the most common cancers in Australia - such as lung, breast and bowel cancer – are included, with patterns likely reflecting the characteristics, lifestyles and access to health services of people living in the area.

The atlas will be an important resource, of benefit to all Australians, and will help drive policy and research to eliminate disparities across Australia in levels of cancer care, resourcing and survival.
