Ready for an Easter sleep? Daylight saving time ends TONIGHT with clocks going back one hour at 3am

  • DST ends for most of Australia, adding an hour to Easter
  • NSW, Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia and the ACT are winding back the clocks at 3am
  • Queensland, WA and Northern Territory do not observe daylight saving time

Analog clocks have to be manually turned back one hour at 3am, giving NSW, Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia and the ACT an extra hour off the long Easter weekend.

Most smartphone devices and computers adjust the time automatically.

The change means that the entire East Coast is one time zone again, with South Australia and the Northern Territory half an hour behind and Western Australia two hours behind.

Australia now has three active time zones: Australian Eastern Standard Time, Australian Central Standard Time and Australian Western Standard Time.

Summer time has been a hallmark of Australian life for 50 years.

Daylight saving time starts again on the first Sunday of October, when the clocks advance one hour from 2 a.m.
