    I'm another Qlder who wishes for daylight saving. If I ruled the world the clock would be an hour forward for the whole year and 2 hours during summer. I have no need for blaring sunlight at 4am but would love longer evenings! I loved the long summer days in the UK when it didn't get dark until 10pm - almost made up for the awful weather.

    Personally I love daylight savings and Summer and all that..

    BUT... I have no idea how my baby son will be once it starts. He's sleeping from 10:30/11pm to 6:30/7pm most nights now (he's just over 5 months). I never had any problems with my older kids with daylight savings so hopefully it's the same with this one.

    I live in qld and I hate daylight saving with a passion. qld does not have twilight, we are too close to the equator we have sunset and it is dark, that is how it is. we have sunrise at around 5 and sets around 7. that is enough hours of sunlight for anyone/ . in the west, the children walk home from school in 40 plus heat. daylight savings would make that 2,30 even hotter, there is no daylight savings in the countries closest to the equator., Victoria and nsw and tas can have it all to themselves. marie

    I freaking love it! And when my kids were younger they adjusted to going to bed when it was light just fine, now they just play outdoors until 7pm and then we do dinner, showers, stories and bed by 8 and they just sleep in a bit in the morning.

    QLD summers weird me out....starting your day at 4.30am because they sun is up (once the sun is up so am I) and it's so hot you can't sleep anyway.

    I can not wait for daylight savings!

    I love it. Means late walks in warm weather, kids can stay out late. Just means summer!! But I live in QLD now and we dont have it. This year will be my first time not enjoying it. Bit sad about that.

    Living in Brisbane and wish we had it! One of my pet peeves about qld (although I understand that further north doesn't need it). I grew up in nz where everyone loves it (except some farmers maybe). As kids we never had a problem going to bed even though it was light until 9pm and half of summer is school holidays anyway. The sun coming up at 4am in Brisbane means the birds wake you even with block out blinds and as it's so early you can't use the light to achieve a lot of things as no public transport so can't go to work early, can't mow the lawns etc.

    LOVE daylight savings! Long summer days are the things I long for.

    I have never found it to be an issue when it comes to my kids sleeping patterns though, no matter their ages. They go to bed at set times, so it doesn't matter if it's still light outside. As babies they were too young to notice it was light outside and their sleeping patterns just never changed. Now they're older, the big 3 notice the daylight, but I just reinforce that it's X o'clock and therefore it's bed time

    Perhaps I've just been lucky?
