Australia’s Antarctic stations all operate on different times. Except during the summer season (October to March) the stations are in different time zones, reflecting the longitudinal distance that separates them.

Time differences between Australia and the stations vary from state to state and also with daylight saving regimes during summer. The following list indicates the time difference, where applicable, between Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST) or Australian Eastern Daylight Time (AEDT) and local time at each station:
