Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST)The differences of the several time zones to each other are always specified in relation to the "Universal Time Coordinated" (UTC), the time on the prime meridian (zero longitude). Phoenix, for example, is on the 122nd degree of longitude west and thus in the UTC-7 time zone. The Australian Eastern Standard Time is consistent with UTC +10.
The Australian Eastern Standard Time does not have an associated daylight saving time.
The Australian Eastern Standard Time applies only to some parts of Australia.
