Gday,
Does any one know what and where the time zones are in WA?
I seem to remember travelling across the Nullabour and having to change my watch a couple times before reaching Perth.
Where do you change while going across the GSR from Alice to Geraldton and what are the time differences?

Cheers

Hairy, WA has only one time zone - Western Standard Time (AWST - GMT + 8:00) so the time zone will come into affect for you as soon as you cross the border into WA. The Central Standard Time (ACST - GMT + 9:30) only operates in South Australia and Northern Territory.

We noticed when we came back across the Nullarbour last year that a couple of roadhouses had their own timezone, which was midway between the SA time and WA time.

Yes, there are a couple of 3/4 hour changes as you come across the border into the West along the Nullarbor. They seem to be a local thing. Nowhere else does this apply; not even in the north west. We ignore those little changes; just adjust 1½ hours when we get into WA (not accounting for any daylight saving periods). As aforesaid, NT and SA are the same.

If you are going through the centre and want to do the Giles Weather Station the tour, that is quoted on SA time not WA time, so you need to be aware of that or miss the tour.

I think the time zone variations on the Nullarbor date back to when the old telegraph station existed at Eucla. It was an attempt to put the WA and SA offices on the same time zones (or near enough).
