Daylight savings 2008

From 2008 the ACT, NSW, South Australia, Victoria and Tasmania will all start daylight savings on the first Sunday in October and end on the first Sunday in April. This introduces common start and finish dates in these states.

Victoria returns to Eastern Standard Time on Sunday 6th April 2008 at 3:00 a.m. and clocks go back one hour.

The extension of Daylight Savings in 2008 may have implications for some computer systems if they have not been updated to the new finish date.

    No, the site is correct, in April we (Victoria) put our clocks back an hour, and just last Sunday, put them forward an hour.

    Paul is correct this information was for the the end of daylight savings back in April 2008. 😉
