Time Zone History - Lord Howe Island

Lord Howe Island's time was officially set to UTC+10:30 in the Standard Time Act of 1971 in NSW legislature. Sources indicate, however, that the island’s practice of maintaining a 30-minute difference with mainland New South Wales started as early as in 1904.

DST was introduced in 1971. Since the island is a part of NSW, its DST history is the same as the mainland state. Today, it is the NSW Standard Time Act 1987 that controls the time in NSW and Lord Howe Island.

30-minute offsets from UTC are not that common, but there are several in Australia.
