Turn clocks back for end of daylight saving
Updated: Nov 11, 2020
Time turns back early on Sunday morning, as daylight saving ends once more, bringing brighter mornings earlier – at least according to our clocks. Attorney General Mark Speakman reminded the people of NSW daylight savings ends this weekend and to ensure they update their clocks. “These days, technology updates most of our devices automatically at the official end of daylight saving," he said.
"That happens at 3.00am on Sunday morning, April 5 when the clock winds back to 2.00am.
"Analogue devices should be turned back an hour before bed. Returning to Eastern Australian Standard Time enables residents across NSW to make the most of the natural light as the days become shorter." Mr Speakman said in these days of social distancing and self-isolation, many will find the extra hour’s sleep in on Sunday morning very welcome. Daylight saving starts on the first Sunday in October and finishes on the first Sunday in April.
