    Yep. Love me a 6:30am start with one break and knock off at 2:30pm. Leaves plenty of time to spend with the kids or doing jobs at home. Also lets you dodge all the peak hour traffic. If I had to work 9-5 and deal with Melbourne traffic I'd go all Michael Douglas in no time flat.

    Actually, I don't mind the sun burning my retinas at 5.00am in the middle of summer.

    Nope, can't see any reason to have daylight saving in Queensland.........

    Love my daylight saving. My old man lives on the Gold Coast, when i visit in summer the sparrows and sun are up at half three in the morning, Along with the old cheese. So bloody annoying. Then after a few home brews hes off to bed at half six in the afternoon and im ready to rock and roll. Get with the times banana benders :D

    1 Queenslander voting yes to daylight savings here !
    I love how our government won't even give us the chance to vote on it

    I've got young kids who wake up with the sun & the birds, 4:45am can f#ck off !!!
    Also my job revolves around Sydney so I get to start at 4am instead of 5am on my morning shifts, yay !

    I think it's the daylight at 8.30 - 9.00pm is the problem.

    Daylight at anytime sucks. Let's just **** the sun off altogether.

    My 2c, daylight saving should be during the winter months when the days are shorter. This gives us an extra hour to dick around in the afternoon before the sun goes down.
