Australian Central Western Standard Time or ACWST has a UTC offset of +8:45. This means that the time zone is 8 and three quarter hours ahead of Coordinated Universal Time. The time zone is primarily observed by territories and states in Australia during the winter months when Daylight Saving is inactive. As soon as Daylight Saving begins – during the summer – the affected territories switch to Australian Central Daylight Time or ACDT.

Australian Central Western Standard Time is what is referred to as a non-standard 45 minute time zone. This means there is a 45 minute difference in local time from the actual one-hour time zone interval you’d usually see if traditional time standards were used.
