Timezones and time changes in Australia

There are 5 different timezones in Australia. Countries with a large distance from west to east are often devided into two or more timezones to adjust daytimes to the position of the sun. Timezones are always computed relative to UTC, the "Universal Time Coordinated".

In Australia, there is a time difference of up to 2.5 hours between the east and the west. Like in most parts of the USA, there is a distinction in Australia drawn between standard time and daylight saving time (also called winter time and summer time), but this distinction is not nationwide.

The next clock change in Sydney will be on April 02nd, 2023 at 3:00 to standard time. The clocks are then set back one hour.
