It finishes on Sunday 30/03/03

How many Qeenslanders out there would like daylight savings
YES for me (South east QLD)

It may be hard for a place like MT Isa, but my thought would be go Shire By Shire, with a sign saying you are now entering a daylight saving Shire

It would be no different than places that live on the coast at the moment and have to cross the boarder for work.

Queenslanders might think that they're only an hour behind, but the reality is that they're years behind Victoria.

Australia still hasn't won a West Indies test series since 1975...

daylight savings would be great for SE Qld. It is not appropriate for anything west, or for that matter, anything north of Gympie. But it would be great to have the extra hour at night. One of the reasons that it would be useful is that the further north you get, the less dusk there is!

Bring on daylight savings.

Born and raised in Melbourne and now living on the Sunshine Coast by choice I offer the following pros and cons:

Vic/Melb: Great culture, great coastline, good public courses, AFL football, MCG, wonderful parks, accessible public transport, restaurants, multiculture. But the weather sucks and so does the traffic.

SE Qld: Weather, beaches, mangoes, the Gabba. Did I mention the climate? But there is precious little in the way of alternate culture, very few alternate restaurants, very poor AFL coverage, no daylight savings. Did I mention that the climate is great?
