Most electronic devices automatically update to daylight saving time, but anyone with a watch or wristwatch will need to forward it by one hour.
South Australia and Broken Hill in New South Wales moved their clocks forward by half an hour to Australian Central Daylight Time.
Australia is one of 70 other countries participating, joining the likes of the United States, Canada, Mexico and New Zealand, as Antarctica changes its hours.
Daylight saving time means that three standard time zones in Australia switch to five during the summer months.
There is no change to the time in Queensland, Western Australia and the Northern Territory, as DST is not observed.
Daylight saving time will end at 3 a.m. on April 3, with time reverting to 2 a.m. in preparation for the shorter, colder days during the winter.
Closed residents of NSW, Victoria and the ACT can look forward to longer days of outdoor time visiting friends and family when restrictions ease.
