Going on a trip to Australia is above all going to the other side of the world. And who says the end of the world speaks first of all about jet lag. Indeed, this difference is not trivial because it is, for Sydney, 15 hours with New York NY (US).

Besides, the geography of Australia extends this time difference over 2 hours due to the width of the country, about 4000 kilometers.

Although it is not over. Mates, In the night from Saturday to Sunday, at 2 a.m., it will be 3 a.m. As every year, Australia applies Daylight Savings Time and switches to summertime, to save energy. And as every year also, the change occurs the last weekend of September.

whether you are leaving for your Aussi trip or you are moving to Australia the theme of the time zone in Australia always intrigues and, even with the list of time zones in hand, the result is still the same.

All Aussie states which apply the time change for energy savings (Daylight Savings Time) will do this Sunday 1 st of October. But beware, some are not affected: in Queensland, Western Australia or the Northern Territory; that never changes time (we will get it today).

This is also the case on Christmas Island, Cocos Island and Norfolk Island. But if you live on Lord Howe Island, you will have to advance the alarm clock by only 30min.

Abstract: Daylight Savings Time

This tradition of resetting for hours has not been intended for the farmers, whose solutions follow the sun, regardless of what time changes for Daylight Savings Time say.

And it is not making the day of the extra day – it is just the changing point when the sun rises and is set relative to the regular schedule and routine of the society.

Benjamin Franklin was one of the first intellectuals who promoted this thought of ​​obtaining better use of daylight. He remarked that the people who slept past in the dawn or sunrise wasted more candles and light later in the night.

He also adorned the earlier system reformations to support energy conservation by firing cannons at dawn as public alarm clocks plus funding homeowners whose windows were closed.

Mates, Australia practice Daylight Saving Time (DST) in various forms since the early 1900s. The majority of Aussie people accept it; However, it has been refused repeatedly by others.

These decisions for Daylight Savings Time reduces the average cost of delivering energy since not everyone is in demand during specific peak usage times.

However, Daylight Time Savings is a big debate from both sides of people. The jokes fly, “Mates; tonight I go to bed an hour earlier, I have to move the sheep an hour ahead! 🀠”as each side rebukes the other for not getting the local situations.

Although, Western Aussie People voted in 2009, but unfortunately, the fourth time, it was rejected and not changed.

But, Queensland has been contemplating splitting the state in half in favor of both, the Daylight Saving and the other not. It will be entertaining to know the results, lol! “Hey, Grandma tonight, don’t forget to move the cock for an hour!😎”

βž”   Interesting to know:

Mates, Oz people speak Daylight “Saving” instead of “Savings” that most other countries speak. The meaning is all the same, but it is one kind of the local term. Here often, we put “S,” because people around the world search “Daylight Savings Time.”

Who Invented Daylight Savings, And Why?

The proposal was first made in Paris, France, by Benjamin Franklin, one of the American “founding fathers” a few years before the French Revolution. This politician (1706-1790) throughout his life was passionate about science.

Benjaminwas the inventor of the lightning rod and, in his essay, “An economic project to decrease the cost of light,” published in the Journal de Paris (1784) he advanced a decidedly original proposal. But it was accepted only in the twentieth century when energy saving became a priority.

Why Do Some Countries On the Planet Move The Clock Back or Forward An Hour?

Mates, it is called time change for daylight saving and only it serves to make better use of the daylight hours. When we bring the clock back in autumn, in practice we transfer an hour of light from evening to morning, when it is most useful for a higher number of people.

The opposite happens in spring. Summertime, on the other hand, indicates the months between spring and autumn, in which we can enjoy an additional hour of light in the evening. The most comprehensive readers will have noticed that, contrary to what one might think, summertimes do not “increase” the daylight hours.

Mates, remember that DST (Daylight Saving TIme) changes do not fundamentally happen on the same date each year.

2 April

Mates, it is interesting as for our neighbours in New Zealand, they are a week early: their time change occurred on September 24. The return to winter time in Australia is scheduled for Sunday, April 2.

In essence, we all find ourselves doing odd calculations for understanding what time it is in Australia and your country, vice versa.

The Time Zones Are In Straya (Australia)

Do you know mates, our Oz is a vast continent that is crossed by three different time zones: now calculating the time difference between one country with Australia can be quite complex because there are several factors to consider.

Western Australia Time (WST)Β Β Β Β Β Β Β Β Β Β 

+8 hours from UTC / GMT

Australian Central Standard Time (ACST)

+9.5 hours from UTC / GMT

Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST)

+10 hours from UTC / GMT

So far so clear right? Too bad that within the same area there are different time zones, an example? Adelaide and Darwin are in the ACST but have different time zones due to summertime or standard time; We will explain it in the next paragraphs.

When in doubt we always advise you to askgoogle or add a time zone on your Android phone or iPhone!

Australia Time Zone In Sydney

Mates, Sydney is the capital of New South Wales and not the country as everyone thinks! That’s Canberra. It is located on the east coast of the country and is the most populated metropolis in Australia. It is built on the beach and is bathed in incredible waters.

So the Sydney time zone is GMT + 11 from October to April and GMT + 8 from May to September.

Perth Time Zone

Perth is famous for being the most remote city in the world, is the capital of Western Australia and is lapped by some of the most beautiful beaches you have ever seen for sure mates.

From October to April the time zone of Perth GMT + 7 while it is more GMT + 6 during the European summer.

Time Zone Melbourne

Melbourne is the capital of Australian social life, famous for its bad weather, clubs almost at the level of European ones and social life 24/7, Melbourne is the capital of Victoria.

It has the same timezone as Sydne.

Brisbane Time Zone

Brisbane is the capital of Queensland and is the only Australian city that is one hour from the beach, which makes it undoubtedly unique, although not extraordinary. Together with Byron Bay, it is considered the most chilled – relaxed – city on the East Coast

.

Queensland, as we said before, adopts standard time throughout the year, so the Brisbane time zone is GMT + 9.

What Time Zone Is There In Adelaide in Aussie?

Adelaide, on the other hand, is the capital of South Australia and is considered the university city par excellence and the drug capital of the country.

Adelaide’s time zone is GMT + 9.5 from October to April and GMT + 7.5 from May to September.

Standard Time And Summertime: How Does It Work In Australia?

In Australia, there is summertime from October to April, but as we  said at the beginning, not all countries adopt it.

Time zones map of Australia

Although there are only three time zones in Australia, it is necessary to pay attention to the different management of summertime in some regions to which the period is opposite to other countries.

For example, European lands of the validity of summertime must be added. Let’s see, mates;

βž”   Regions +7 hours from European country Italy to Western Australia Time is +8 hours from UTC

The state of Western Australia, the lime green colour on the map above is the only area of ​​the WA (Western Australia), it represents the western part of Australia. It includes a good third of the total area.

Now compared to Italy, this area is 7 hours and 8 hours ahead of UTC / GMT. The most well-known city in this area is Perth.

βž”   Territories and States +8.5 hours from Italy – Australian Central Standard Time is +9.5 hours from UTC.

The states and territories in the centre of Australia have the same time zone, but this care must be taken in managing daylight saving time.

Now, the Northern Territories area does not apply summertime, so be careful moving in the Straya’s summer period in between two different regions at the same longitude you have the time change.

Compared to Italy these areas are 8.5 hours ahead and 9.5 hours ahead of UTC / GMT.

  • South Australia
  • Northern Territory (does not apply summertime)
  • New South Wales (Broken Hill region only)

The reference city in this area is Alice Springs in central Australia.

βž”   The Complexity Of DST Changes

It is the duty and responsibilities of the Australian Federal Government and regional governments for a particular state to determine the implementation of Daylight Savings locally.

Due to this, DST becomes more diversified at times and a confusing matter.

Β Daylight Saving Time Is Functioned In Australia

Mates, note it that first Sunday of every October month to the first Sunday of April, but not in all states. Let’s find out in detail how it works πŸ™‚Β 

Who Adopts The Summertime

Therefore moves the clock hands forward one hour:

  • New South Wales
  • Victoria
  • South Australia
  • Tasmania
  • ACT (Australian Capital Territory)

What does all this mean?

It means that now I’m in Darwin and I’m at +8.5 compared to Italy. Although Adelaide is within the same time slot, it adopts standard time, so it is currently at +9.5 compared to Italy.

Those Who Don’t Adopt Summertime

Mates, do you know? Three Aussie regions do not apply daylight saving time: thus, the calendar time remains all year round:

  • Queensland,
  • Western Australia
  • Northern Territory

During the Australian summer, therefore, a paradoxical situation is created. In essence, it happens, for example, that those in Sydney are one hour ahead of those in Brisbane, even if the latter is geographically further east!

And all this because of the summertime that is not recognized by all Australian states.

  • A unique feature is Lord Howe Island which has a daylight saving time shift of only 30 minutes from UTC + 10: 30 to UTC +11.

History Of DST Dates In Australia

Mates, our Australian Daylight Saving Time (DST), was introduced in Australia in between World War-I when the Commonwealth used its wartime abilities to strengthen it to all states and regions in Australia.

The first established Daylight Saving Time Year in the whole Kangaroo land was 1917; However, since 1942, some of the areas have opted to obey the DST.

It is the responsibility of individual state and territory governments to decide when and why daylight savings will be implemented locally. All DST settings transpired at 0200 local standard times.

Mates, you can recognize year-round variety DST in Australia.

Some recent years information on this page comes from data published in the time zone database maintained by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA).

The Trials – Western Australian Daylight Savings Time

From the summer of 2006 to the summer of 2008, Western Australia was forced to choose DST as a ‘trial,’ and after the voting held to examine the people’s view that they like Daylight Savings or not. Sadly, It was once again defeated.

The DST has always been a divisive subject in W.A. Historically, each referendum or voting on the topic has refused the plan. Still, every few years, the issue works its way back on to the political agenda.

A referendum was held in 2009 to decide whether it should become permanent. The majority of voters rejected it. The previous three polls on March 8, 1975, April 7, 1984, and April 4, 1992, were dismissed.

Moreover, DST creates more obstacles than it fixes as Aussie can go for 5 time zones instead of 3 during summer.

In a funny way..

“The Prime Minister has decided to take an hour in the spring to give it back this fall, but don’t count that he won’t ask for your bill, interest and exchange fees!” 

World Daylight Savings Time Change

The time change only matters in regions where the brightness varies greatly. This is why the transition to daylight saving time is observed in the majority of countries in Europe and North America 76 countries around the world are affected by this change.

Some countries (65 countries concerned) have abolished summertime, such as Russia, in 2011. This country, crossed by 11 time zones, had decided to remain in the summertime.

The sun rose at 11 a.m. in winter, and the locals complained about the long, dark mornings, so they decided to stay all wintertime all year round! On the other hand, most countries in Africa and Asia do not observe a time change.

For your reference and study, we’ve listed below many of the countries that observe Daylight Savings Time. .

Time Difference Between Australia And the United States

“Don’t worry about the world coming to an end today. It’s already tomorrow in Australia.”

– Charles M. Schulz

Australia has multiple time zones; that’s why we list some of the most important places with their local times. The United States has various time zones, which is why we list some of the most important areas with their respective local times. Since most US people don’t use GMT, here are your GMT hours:

USA Time Zones Daylight Savings Standard Time
EST – Eastern Standard Time  -5 Hours GMT -4 Hours GMT
PST –  Pacific Standard Time -8 Hours GMT -7 Hours GMT

DST for most of the United States was changed in 2008

  • Starts at 2 a.m. on the 2nd Sunday of March;
  • Ends at 2 a.m. on the 1st Sunday of November.

What does it mean?

If it is GMT 0 and 3 am Tuesday in Greenwich, England

Sydney, NSW Australia Tuesday 1 pm
Seattle, Washington USA Tuesday 8 pm
New York City, NY USA Monday 11 pm

DST not observed in Arizona, American Samoa, Hawaii, Guam, Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and the Eastern Time Zone portion of Indiana.

Several Countries Have Suppressed Daylight Savings Time Change

In Japan, the American occupier instituted the time change in 1948, but returned to full sovereignty; the country abolished it in 1952. China also tried to adopt the system of double hours in 1986.

In 2011, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev decided to protect the Russians from “stress and” illnesses “caused by him according to the time change and to set Russia permanently to summertime by adopting the GMT + 4-time zone in Moscow.

It had been introduced there in 1917 and abandoned for the first time in 1930, the country then preserving the summertime, before resuming summer and winter time in 1981.

But following protests from the local population, dissatisfied with having to move in the middle of the night in the depths of the Russian winter, the government decided in 2014 to switch definitively to wintertime, using the GMT + 3-time zone in Moscow.

Belarus, Iceland, and Argentina have also abandoned the time changes.Switching to wintertime would save the koalas

According to a 2016 study published in the journal Biology Letters, switching to wintertime would decrease the number of koalas killed on the roads.

The koalas move at night; accidents happen at that time. Turning to winter lengthens the brightness time in the evening. According to researchers’ calculations, fewer koalas would, therefore, be hit.

Is Changing The Time Dangerous?

Only for those who drive; the peak times for motorists are between eight and ten in the morning and between three and seven in the afternoon. When the hands turn back in the fall, most of the afternoon rush hour goes by without sunlight.

For a variety of reasons, more accidents occur in the afternoon rush hours than in the morning, and some studies suggest that moving the hands back in the fall may increase the number of accidents.

Daylight Savings Means Energy Savings

In the spring-summer period, the months that mark the most considerable energy savings are April and October. Moving the hands forward by one-hour delays the use of artificial light at a time when work activities are still in full swing.

In the summer months, the ‘delay’ effect in the lighting of the bulbs occurs in the evening hours when the work activities are mostly finished and show less evident values ​​in terms of electricity savings.

Biological Advantages Of Daylight Savings

Maintaining daylight saving time all year round would allow us to synthesize more vital vitamin D in our body since we would benefit from more natural light at the end of the day. The conviviality would also be reinforced, with longer open-air aperitif evenings.

So Is Time. Change A Fluid Concept?

Mates, In the recent modern era marked by digital clocks, train times and synchronized calendars,  smartphones, we have the feeling that time is fixed and arranged. But it wasn’t always like this buddy.

Before technology was able to keep time reliably, people structured the hours much more vaguely. Ancient civilizations divided sunlight into 12 hours regardless of the length of the day.

This meant that the daylight hours became longer during spring and summer, shorter during autumn and winter.

The fact that the Romans used this system is demonstrated by the finding of hourglasses of varying sizes for the different months of the year.

Even after the invention of mechanical watches, the time has remained quite varied from one place to another.

For example, Some Aussie areas, including Broken Hill and Eucla, maintain the separate time zones from their respective states where they are located.

Conclusion

In the end…

Mates, If we citizens respect the change of Daylight saving, and standard time politicians at least once a year should respect an hour of silence πŸ˜‰πŸ˜Ά
