There is also a mostly horizontal divide into states which have
DST (in the South) and those that don't (in the North/West).

Cameron Corner borders on New South Wales (+1100, Australia/Sydney),
South Australia (+1030, Australia/Adelaide) and Queensland (+1000,
Australia/Brisbane, which doesn't have DST).
