For Western Australia,

Standard Time Act 2005

Daylight Saving Act 2006

Unfortunately, neither act (or subsiduary regulations) point to an
accepted abbreviation, and just use the terms "standard time" and
"summer time".   The Standard Time Act 2005 does reference UTC
as defined by Commonwealth law.
