History of DST on Lord Howe Island

Lord Howe Island started using DST in 1971 at the same time as New South Wales. The clock was moved forward by a full hour according to the Standard Time Act 1971. In 1985, a governor’s order stated that DST on Lord Howe Island would be 30 minutes ahead of Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST), putting it on the same local time as NSW during the DST period.

DST operated nationally in Australia during World War I and for three periods during World War II.
