Meanwhile, Queensland, Western Australia and the Northern Territory will remain on standard time.

New Zealand started daylight saving last weekend.

Blog comments Your Say

  • The difference between sunrise/set and civil twilight as shown on www.ga.gov.au (Geoscience Australia) proves that the duration between sunrise/set and civil twilight is only a few minutes longer in Melbourne than Brisbane.

    Not hours, not even a quarter of an hour.

    I have the tables uploaded to my Twitter page, click on pictures within @marcusdsfacts and get the facts.

    No Bob Lord has not said that, CRY got it wrong, close but wrong. You, as usual are just wrong.

    Surely Bob Lord has not said he was a lawyer, my understanding was he worked in Admin for the Justice Department.

  • Thanks CRY
    That's clearer. SO, during the trial did you turn the lights on later at night or did you still turn them on during daylight.
    It's unusual and unfortunate that you had to go to school so early. These days better transport means that children mostly no longer walk to school.

  • I forgot that there was dumb arses like Bob Lord who reads these blogs and do not have the ability to comprehend what is the actual message, so I will make it more simplistic for him. I remember going through the trial as a kid, getting dressed to go to school when it was dark outside and having the lights turned on inside, that really saves on the electrical bill. Is that clearer for you Bob, and you have mentioned in the past that you were a lawyer and have worked for the public service. Scary thought when you can not comprehend simple posting, but it explains why you swallow the ALP propaganda, you can not analyse what is being said.

  • A mate from Victoria who owns a business said today. "If Qlders hate daylight saving so much and they all say they do why do they keep asking if they can go home from work early to get some work done."
