Remember to Change the Clocks this Weekend!

Tuesday, 30 Sep 2014

Daylight saving will begin again in NSW on Sunday, 5 October 2014, when clocks will go forward one hour at 2:00am.

Daylight saving time is the practice of advancing clocks so that afternoons have more daylight and mornings have less. Modern DST was first proposed in 1895 by George Vernon Hudson, a New Zealand entomologist.

For future summers, daylight saving in New South Wales begins at 2:00am, Eastern Standard Time, on the first Sunday in October and ends at 3:00am Eastern Daylight Saving Time on the first Sunday in April.
