The Daylight Times Group Message:


Hello Queensland & New South Wales,

The Daylight Times is a new Cairns-based group whose role it will be to cover news items in relation to how the daylight is being timed across both Queensland and New South Wales.

We are a news group who are for the people, by the people on the very issue of daylight so we we’ll have a lot to put to state politicians, particularly those who are not willing to get the daylight balance right for the good of all council regions with-in their state.

As our team grows, you can follow us on Facebook and Twitter to be kept up to date for the latest news, affairs and opinions coming from all angles concerning the very topic of daylight from right across Queensland and New South Wales:



Why Did Tropical Queensland Help Establish The Daylight Times in Cairns?

Here in Tropical North Queensland the Newsport ( provided these 2 articles mentioning how it’s no longer just a case of the majority of Queenslanders backing Daylight Saving at least down in Southeast Queensland, but the majority also back the change up here in our tropical ‘tourism-driven’ north:

Tropical Queensland Article: Time for a Change

Newsport’s Poll: 162 Tropical Locals backed Daylight Saving Vs 118 against it

Our Diverse Team Agreement Given that Not All Need Eastern Daylight Time 

Since the release of this poll, our Rural & Regional Queensland (R&RQ) crews and their constituents advised us they’re happy to settle for the South Australia/Broken Hill Australian Central Daylight Time (ACDT) instead as this will stimulate their economies with other states, economically outperforming any 30 minute time differences with Southeast Queensland which itself does need Australian Eastern Daylight Time (AEDT) – R&RQ voted against AEDT being observed in their communities back in 1992

So as we continue building our independent and geographically diverse network of reporters across our 2 states, please don’t hesitate to e-mail us at if you have a story or matter to report to us concerning the very issue of daylight in Queensland and/or New South Wales.

In the meantime, here at The Daylight Times we’ll keep you informed of fresh news as it comes to hand.
