Kind proves the theory that the daylight savings works in Vic and they must have gained more than an extra hour of daylight per day.
In February in Cairns it has 12hr 36 min daylight
Melbourne it is 13hr and 21 minutes
That is a total of 1 hour and 45minutes extra per day or approximately 49 hours for the month of February
It ain’t rocket science

Maybe check  your mathematics there mate.

It’s not about sunshine. While Seq and the southerners can go galavanting in the magic twilight of a cooling day, in fnq in summer it stays over 35 odd degrees right up until sunset and after. If you didn’t have artificial cooling during the last trials we had it would have been hard work trying to do simple things like cook and get kids ready for bed while they are in a full sweat. We barely get any inside time at the end of the day as it is. I was in fnq for the trial we did in ‘89 (?) prior to taking the vote and I still whole heartedly say shove it where the sun doesn’t shine. If you want to be a time lord, bugger off down south. The rest of the world is moving away from it also. https://www.google.com.au/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/world/2019/mar/26/european-parliament-votes-to-scrap-daylight-saving-time-from-2021
:cup: :cup: :cup:

Couldn't agree more GBC! I was in Mt Isa checking out some work during that trial, try sitting down to an evening meal at 7pm daylight saving time (in reality 6pm) no aircon and temperature about 43 degrees! just before the end of the trial, doing an airfield inspection at Horn Island before the first flight of the day in from Cairns, had the headlights of the vehicle on at 6.45 am daylight saving time.

What people don't seem to realise is North Queensland is not only north of Brisbane but west as well

We had to change our timetable at school during that trial.
Playing pretend time pushed lunch break to the hottest time of the day so they moved all of the classes around to not make us go outside right at midday.

Then obviously everything had to get changed back when we stoped playing pretensies.

Us normal people up here can accept that the sun comes up a little earlier in the summer and just get on with life.

I’m pretty confident in my maths which I did do in my head based on the times Pete posted calculated without the aid of a calculator, but happy to see the correction if needed.

I don’t think moving lunch an hour either way of  say 12.30 will result in much of a difference in the temperature.
In any case many schools most likely adjust times to suit their environment, I know my daughters primary school started an hour later due to the frost and cold issues that we experienced in the mountains in winter.
Schools in far west of NSW have a different calendar than those east of Broken Hill.

From what I've seen, in summer most workers that aren't ensconced in an airconditioned, artificially lit environment, are keen to bring work start times forward an hour to take advantage of having more of their work hours in the cooler part of the day. Every place I've worked in hangars and industrial sheds has been the same.

Makes bugger all difference to office workers obviously, except that they have a lot more daylight hours after they finish work. Some don't see the advantages, but then again that's usually the non-outdoors types anyway. I used to love it, but now being retired it makes bugger all difference to me.
4.2L TD Toyota Troopy, (Clarke's Country Camper Trailer, softfloor.) sold it and bought a Avan Ray small poptop caravan. I miss being able to acces the little tracks off into the scrub.

Wasn't trying to be smart mate, but here you go.

The difference between 12 hrs 36 mins, and 13 hrs 21 mins is 45 mins, not 1 hr 45 mins.

Bob, I didn’t think you were being smart, but maybe you are smarter than me at maths so no offence taken.
You maybe on to something there, when I take me boots of later this arvo I will have ten toes to use to check my maths.

I don't know. When we had the trial here 30 yrs ago, a friend wrote a a TIC letter to local rag, lamenting faded curtains, problems with milking cows.....just a general piss take, well the poor old local rag nearly had to provide a 12pg supplement for all the responses they got. It was really funny actually

Plenty of people in NSW don't want it either.

All I know is that due to some magical decision I am now getting out of bed at what used to be 3:45am and going to bed when I can still see outside. Not very many beaches around here to go surfing and will very soon get too bloody hot to be doing too much in the afternoon after work.

So far this morning I’ve taken the dog for a 7km walk, worked on the trailer for half an hour and pulled a few weeds out of the front garden.
Sitting down now with a coffee and poached eggs on toast watching the news with another 15 minutes before I need to take the kids to school and then start work.

Geez I wish we had another hour of darkness... ::)
