A Facebook group lobbying for daylight saving to be brought to Queensland currently has more than 10,000 likes.
The Sunshine Coast Daily’s poll shows 72% of voters are prepared to embrace the time change in acknowledgement that summer is coming.
Daylight saving will begin again on Sunday when clocks go forward one hour in NSW, Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania and the ACT.
The time zone change will revert to Australian Eastern Standard Time however Queensland will once again be left behind.
Business owner Gary Hastings lives in NSW and owns a party shop in Capalaba, making time management essential.
“We have to keep our clocks and watched on Queensland time to ensure we don’t miss any important meetings or appointments,” Mr Hastings said.
“This makes is difficult once we are at home and shops are closed because we’re still on Queensland time, it can get very confusing.”
At the end of last summer, more than 26,000 people presented a petition to the State Government calling for daylight saving to be introduced to southeast Queensland.
In response to this Premier Campbell Newman said he was not prepared to divide the state as many people living outside of southeast Queensland are not in support of daylight saving.
