About Western Australia
Western Australia has several distinct regions:
Close to Asia
Western Australia is in the same time zone as many Asian regions and only a short flight from many capital cities in Asia, the sub-continent, and the Gulf States. This makes many students feel closer to home and makes it easy to keep in contact with friends and family on the telephone.
Australian Time zones
There are three time zones in Australia, due to its large size. During the summer period some parts of Australia have daylight saving, but not here in Western Australia.
