Wind down, wind back as daylight savings ends | PHOTOS

Say goodbye to those dark mornings and spend an extra hour in bed... daylight savings is over for another year.

What begins as excitement for "barbecue season" in Spring always ends in relief by Autumn as parts of the country that observe Daylight Savings wind their clocks back back one hour.

This year, clocks in Victoria, NSW, South Australia, Tasmania and the ACT will need to be wound back at 3am on Sunday, April 6.

In South Australia, SafeWork executive director Bryan Russell issued a reminder this week to residents that they should be prepared for the change in time going into the next week.


“We’re encouraging people to wind their clocks back one hour before going to bed Saturday night,” Mr Russell said.

Daylight saving is not observed in Queensland, Western Australia or the Northern Territory.

States and territories which currently have daylight saving will resume it on Sunday, October 5, 2014.

Perhaps by then we'll all be excited for "barbecue season" once more.
