Bug#149902: Australian time zones
The official list of timezones for Australia, as provided by the Australian Government, does not include EST anywhere on the page. AEST is the correct abbreviation.
There are three times zones in Australia -
* Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST): Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) plus 10 hours for standard time and 11 hours for daylight savings time. AEST is followed in these regions:
o New South Wales
o Australian Capital Territory
* Australian Central Standard Time (ACST): GMT plus 9 ½ hours for standard time and 10 ½ hours for daylight savings time. ACST is followed in these regions:
o South Australia
o Northern Territory
* Australian Western Standard Time (AWST): GMT plus 8 hours. AWST is followed in these regions:
o Western Australia
This should be re-opened as a bug. Timeanddate.com do not have the most correct timezone information on their website, the Australian Government do.
