Western Central Time in Australia?

by kai on 08/11/2007

I’m just working on a some sort of a timezone related piece of functionality and while doing some investigation towards all the timezones in OZ and NZ and the dates when they switch between DST and Standard Time, I came across a very odd purple bubble called WCT = Western Central Time.


Does anyone know WCT in OZ? Come on, that must be some sort of easter egg from the guys at worldtimezone.com?

UPDATE: It’s not a joke, it’s real. WTC covers about 200 people alongside the border of West Australia to South Australia who have created their own little private timezone. It’s mentioned in Wikipedia and they’ve even got pictures of the highway “border” sign online. Awesome 🙂

Awesome, I had no idea that time zone existed, and I’d bet neither do 99.99% of Aussies 😛
