Should we press for a change to Daylight Savings, or are we going to wait until the cows go home, or the curtains fade before we join the rest of Australia? What’s your view?? Let us know how your business is affected so we can let the politians know too!

How many of you have made an appointment only to find that the person who you spoke to was from NSW and had intended that the meeting or event you were planning to attend was an hour ago? How many times have you tried to get to Melbourne of Sydney for a meeting or all day event in the morning and found that you had to fly down the night before and pay extra for a night in a hotel to be on time?  How many times have you tried to call in the afternoon in summer and found that the business you were calling is not in QLD and has gone home for the day.

Let us know your views here. Should we press for a change to Daylight Savings, or are we going to wait until the cows go home, or the curtains fade before we join the rest of Australia? What’s your view?? Let us know how your business is affected so we can let the politians know too!

As the owner of St Helens Bar & Kitchen in Kirra, I believe that the time change during Summer impacts the whole sector of my industry. Being a transplant from the Southern States, I truly cannot understand why there is no daylight saving when the weather up here is consistently so beautiful during the summer. These sentiments are echoed by nearly everybody I talk to!

The extra hour of daylight would (in my opinion) bolster the trade of many businesses in the area while bringing us into line with the rest of the East Coast.
