Daylight savings ends Sunday 7 April


Yes, it’s that time again, the end of daylight savings for another year.

While some will be thrilled to wake up with the sun again, others will bemoan the darkness on the drive home from work.

To keep it simple most devices will automatically adjust to the new time.

For those that struggle to get their head around the change, here it is in simple language:

Daylight saving ends on Sunday 7 April.

At 3am, clocks will be turned backward one hour to 2am.

Sunrise and sunset will be about one hour earlier on Sunday.

There will be more light in the morning.

Clocks will change Sunday 7 April when daylight savings ends
  • For those that are interested, this round of daylight savings began on Sunday 1 October 2023, that’s when we last adjusted our clocks.
  • Daylight saving was first observed in NSW during World War I, during World War II and has been observed every year since 1971.
  • NSW, Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania, the ACT and Norfolk Island observe daylight saving. Queensland, the Northern Territory, WA, Christmas Island and the Cocos (Keeling) Islands don’t follow daylight saving – their time does not change throughout the year.
  • Daylight Savings will return on Sunday 6 October 2024.
