Tomorrow morning, Daylight Saving kicks in once again in NSW, Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania and the ACT. We explain when to reset your clocks (and which direction you need to go in!)

Daylight Saving officially commences at 2am (3am Daylight Saving Time) on Sunday morning, October 1. This means we all miss out on an hour of sleep tonight. Tch, eh?

Your smartphones, laptops and tablets should all make the adjustment automatically. However, if you're rocking an analogue watch/clock or aren't connected to the internet, you will need to do it manually.

Daylight Saving Time: Is It One Hour Back Or One Hour Forward?

If you can never seem to remember which way to reset your clock, this cute little adage should help to steer you in the right direction:

"You 'Spring' forward, then you 'Fall' back."

In other words, you move the time forward one hour in Spring and move it back one hour in Autumn (AKA "Fall"). It really is as simple as that!


    Spring ahead, Autumn back

      ‘All turn’ back.
