10 hours behind Brisbane is also known as GMT (Greenwich Mean Time time zone) since the 1850s and 1860s (before Daylight Saving emerged) when the Greenwich Royal Observatory in London was chosen by the USA (in particular) as the centre for world time. This line at the Observatory bisects East and West, being 0 degrees longitude.

One of the issues prompting this declaration was The Philippines. Their new Spanish Governor in 1844 had decided to skip a day and Monday December 30 1844 was followed by Wednesday January 1 1845.

On 1 November 1884, GMT was adopted universally at the International Meridian Conference in Washington, DC. As a result, the International Date Line was drawn up and 24 time zones were created.

In 1972, the International Telecommunications Union based in Geneva Switzerland established UTC (Co-ordinated Universal Time) as their official time standard, a standard which is in fact identical with GMT.

Hi all

Yep, nearly that time of year when we realign with Sydney time. This Sunday week.

Great little link below, you can change month and year, by manually altering the hyperlink. Or clicking on their date option (just below their heading). You can also change countries. Boy, I could have used one of these at school when I was in that geography/physics class trying to figure out all those "bits and bobs and what ifs".

Daylight Saving Time by Country

Some History
Daylight Saving Time History

In ancient times, by using sundials there were always 12 hours in the day, though its length varied with the seasons. Romans were fond of the water clock, a mechanised way of knowing the time, day and night. After mechanical clocks developed about 1000 AD, the length of the hour gradually became fixed. People varied their opening hours between seasons, as it suited them.

In 1916, daylight saving was introduced during World War 1 by both sides of the conflict as a means of conserving coal. That included Australia (in 1917 only). Afterwards, while UK US France Canada and Ireland kept it going, other European countries, and Russia, abandoned it. It was restored by many countries during World War 2, abandoned afterwards, then brought in again, starting in Tasmania in 1968. Most of Australia followed in 1971 (excepting Western Australia and Northern Territory). After many complaints in much of Queensland, it was abandoned there the following year i.e. in 1972. It was retrialled under Labour Premier Wayne Goss in 1989, before being abandoned for good in 1992.
