Daylight savings knocks clock

Normally daylight savings in Melbourne ends on the last Sunday of March but from this year daylight savings will end on the first Sunday of April and so some clocks turned back one hour on Sunday.

One of the clocks to do so was the iconic Nylex clock but interestingly it appears it couldn't be turned back forward and so has been switched off until Monday next week.

I think it was thought to be better to switch it off instead of trying to fix for less than six days and I read that a satellite link could not be overridden.

I actually like the idea of extending daylight savings into April and this year has been even better with school holidays and that extra one hour has been handy.

Later this year daylight savings in Melbourne will start on the 5th of October which is some three weeks earlier compared to last year when daylight savings kicked on the 28th of October.
