  | Weird.  I just followed the URL you gave, which led me to
  | <http://www.parliament.wa.gov.au/parliament/bills.nsf/62D4F7C55EA88993482572110007316A/$File/Bill174-1.pdf>,

You want Bill175-1B.pdf

  | and Part 2 s. 4 (page 3) specifies December 1, not December 3.  Surely
  | December 3 (a Sunday) is right, but it's a bit disconcerting that the
  | "official" reference gets it wrong.

The newer one has Dec 3.

  | The "official" reference also says that the March transitions are at 3
  | a.m. local time (2 a.m. standard time).  I assume this is right, as
  | it's the Australian tradition.


  | Since the voters of Western Australia may well overturn this change,

Yes, but not until sometime in 2009 (sometime between May and September)

  | we'll have to revisit it in February or March.

Not next year.
