Daylight Saving Time
4BC News: Daylight saving begins in half of Australia early on Sunday morning, while the rest of the country will resist putting their clocks forward.
NSW, Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania and the ACT will move onto daylight saving at 2am local time.
Meanwhile, Queensland, Western Australia and the Northern Territory will remain on standard time.
New Zealand started daylight saving last weekend.
Guide: Daylight Saving Time
If it's midday in Queensland, what time is it elsewhere in Australia?
How will times change on Sunday, October 7?
Brisbane and the rest of Queensland: Will not change.
Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra and Hobart will be:
- 1 hour ahead of Brisbane
- Half an hour ahead of Adelaide
- 1.5 hours ahead of Darwin
- 3 hours ahead of Perth
- 2 hours behind New Zealand
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.

No Bob Lord has not said that, CRY got it wrong, close but wrong. You, as usual are just wrong.Bob Lord Wednesday 10 October, 2012 - 1:45 PM
Surely Bob Lord has not said he was a lawyer, my understanding was he worked in Admin for the Justice Department.Gayle Wednesday 10 October, 2012 - 12:21 PM
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.Bob Lord Wednesday 10 October, 2012 - 9:05 AM
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.CRY FREEDOM Wednesday 10 October, 2012 - 7:51 AM
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."Bob Lord Tuesday 9 October, 2012 - 4:29 PM
