"At Caiguna, W.A (about 350km from the W.A/S.A border) you switch
to "Perth" time..."

This means that Caiguna is NOT on CWAT time (UTC+8:45), but the following
villages are:
Border Village (South Australia)

The last one, Cocklebiddy, is my interpretation. It just lies in the
Nuytsland Natural Reserve, but it could well be in the CWAT timezone. Does
anybody know?
