In relation to the article by Graeme Brittenden (Seniors Newspaper editions, Opinion section, December) http://www.seniorsnews.com.au/news/daylight-saving-perspective
I wish to add:- My wife and I have always been advocates of daylight saving as we were originally from Victoria some 26 years years ago.
Recently we travelled from the north end of the Gold Coast to Coffs Harbour for 1 week holiday. It was great except for one thing and that was the changing to daylight saving time at the start and finish.
It was something we had not experienced before and we will never travel out of this zone again during daylight saving times
. I read with much interest of the suggestion changing the clocks to a half hour earlier in the eastern states and ACT permanently and after great thought I agree whole heartedly with the item as printed.
