Clock confusion

RESIDENTS will enjoy an extra hour of sleep on Sunday, as the clocks are moved back an hour, marking the end of daylight saving.

With daylight saving ending, confusion has ticked into overdrive with many unsure whether the time change brings more or less light in the mornings.

Daylight saving began on 2 October at 2am with the clocks moving forward, giving the day one more hour of light in the evening.

Longer daylight evenings will end on Sunday at 3am when clocks are moved back one hour.

Victoria, New South Wales, Tasmania, Australian Capital Territory and South Australians will all conclude daylight saving.

Daylight saving is not observed in Queensland, the Northern Territory or Western Australia.

With a land mass close to 7.7 million square kilometres, Australia is the world’s sixth largest country and is divided into three separate time zones, Australian Eastern Standard Time, Australian Central Standard Time and Australian Western Standard Time.
