Daylight Savings Ends this weekend
Minister for Industrial Relations Chris Bourke reminds Canberrans that daylight saving ends this Sunday morning.
"I remind all Canberrans that daylight saving ends on Sunday 1 April at 2 am,"
Dr Bourke said.
"Residents will need to put their clocks back an hour from this time.
"Daylight savings ends on the first Sunday in April and starts again on the first Sunday in October.
"All other States who participate in daylight saving will also end it this Sunday.
"I am sure that Canberrans appreciate the period of daylight saving. It is enjoyed by the local hospitality sector in particular and gives families more opportunities to spend daylight hours together sharing Canberra’s great outdoors.
"The end of daylight saving can also be a good prompt to put new batteries in your smoke detectors for winter," Dr Bourke said.
