Australian Eastern Standard Time or AEST has a UTC offset of + 10:00. This means that the time zone is 10 hours ahead of Coordinated Universal Time. The time zone is primarily observed by territories in Australia during the winter months when Daylight Saving is inactive. As soon as Daylight Saving starts – during the summer – some affected areas switch to Australian Eastern Daylight Time or AEDT.

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

  • Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST)

  • Eastern Standard Time (EST)

  • Australian Eastern Time (AET)
