Time in Australia
The exact time in Australia is based on the time zones for Australia. We will always try to give you the exact time for Australia. There might be slight differences, since the time zones for Australia might change due to daylight savings time (DST).
Time changes in Australia are usually done to adapt citizen and tourist activity to the solar cycle. This allows for greater usage of daylight, reducing dependency on electricity. That is why the time is sent ahead one hour in the spring for Australia, and falls back one hour in the fall for Australia. Adding an extra hour of daylight helps Australia to improve its tourism and depend less on Australia's electricity supplies.
