Daylight savings ends this Sunday

Wind your manual clocks back one hour before going to bed Saturday night.
Wind your manual clocks back one hour before going to bed Saturday night.

In what may well trip those of us away on Easter holidays, the clocks turn back in the early hours of Easter Sunday morning, April 4, as the current round of daylight saving ends.

At 3am automatic clocks will revert to 2am, so those in NSW, South Australia, Victoria and Tasmania should adjust other clocks manually before going to bed on Saturday night.

Unless of course you've journeyed into Queensland which, along with the Northern Territory and Western Australia, don't observe daylight saving.

The end of the time shift comes as a relief to border communities straddling two time zones and dealing with the capacity for error that accompanies it.

Being an hour early or late for appointments, missing shop closing times (or sitting around waiting for them to open) are par for the course for those not adept at constantly converting between DST and EST.

The reprieve lasts until Sunday, October 3, when the time shuffle starts all over again.
