Australian Time Zones

Australia has 3 time zones: Eastern Standard Time (EST), Central Standard Time (CST) and Western Standard Time (WST).

You may also see this listed on the Internet as AEST, ACST and AWST to distinguish it from the time zones in the United States.

Most, but not all areas of Australia observe Daylight Savings.
