I agree too.  However it appears that not all Australian timezones are represented in that website.  I sent an email through to them after reading the original email in this series of emails suggesting they have left out both Australian Central West Standard Time (ACWST GMT+8:45 - timezone where Eucla is) and also the timezone for Lord Howe Island which is usually 30 mins ahead of Sydney except during DST when they're the same time (Lord Howe Island only advances 30 min during DST).

Thank you.

Kind Regards,
David Grosz

There are only 10 types of people in the world.  Those who understand binary and those who don't.
