Question clocks and darkness???

Do the clocks go back an hour for winter in Nz? and when does it get dark in the depth of winter, I am going to the North side.

Yes, the clocks do go back an hour. Yes, it does get dark quite early towards the end of June, maybe five-thirtyish or sixish, around there.

I was wondering the same.

Is there a government site where we can see when to change clocks? I'm way too lazy to go and search.

The clocks go forward in summer, in winter they go back to normal time.

We were getting up in the dark at 7am in North Shore and I hated it.

There's no 'summer time' here though, I think it's a year-round concept
