Australian Eastern Daylight Time or AEDT has a UTC offset of + 11:00. This means that the time zone is 11 hours ahead of Coordinated Universal Time. The time zone is primarily observed by territories in Australia and the Pacific Islands during the summer months when Daylight Saving is active. As soon as Daylight Saving ends – during the winter – some affected areas switch to Australian Eastern Standard Time or AEST.

It is important to note that this time zone has several labels:

  • Australian Eastern Daylight Time (AEDT)

  • Eastern Daylight Time (EDT)

  • Eastern Daylight Saving Time (EDST)
