It comes around every year, but the when and what of daylight savings can still confuse the best of us. Here's your handy guide for 2018 in Australia — mark those calendars!

Note: daylight saving time is observed in all Australian states except for Queensland, Western Australia and the Northern Territory.

When Does Daylight Savings End?

  • Date: Sunday, April 1, 2018
  • We need to: turn clocks back by one hour (fall back). For example, if you wake up at 7 a.m. on Sunday and your phone hasn't updated (like most do), wind it back to 6 a.m.
  • What this means: the sun rises and sets earlier

When Does Daylight Savings Start?

  • Date: Sunday, October 7, 2018
  • We need to: turn clocks forward by one hour (spring forward). For example, if you wake up at 7 a.m. on Sunday and your phone hasn't updated (like most do), wind it forward to 8 a.m.
  • What this means: the sun rises and sets later
