One Less Hour of Sleep

Aussies will lose one hour of night time going into DST this spring, but it will be returned to them in the fall, when DST ends on Sunday, April 3, 2016.

New Zealand starts DST one week before Australia, but the two neighboring countries end DST on the same day.

Norfolk Island Changes Time Zone

At the same time when most Australians set their clocks forward one hour, Norfolk Islanders will set their clocks back 30 minutes to Norfolk Time (NFT).

This will give Kingston the same time as Canberra, Melbourne, and Hobart during the DST period.
