Australia really does not make it easy to keep track of what time it is... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_in_Australia

 

Looks like we need the following time zones are neccessary for Australia, maybe you can check if that is right?

 

<item id="AUS1">Western Australia</item>

<item id="AUS2">South Australia</item>

<item id="AUS3">Northern Territory</item>

<item id="AUS4">Queensland</item>

<item id="AUS5">New South Wales</item>

<item id="AUS6">Australian Capital Territory</item> (that would include Victoria and Tasmania)

I had to change the dst offsets as they are wrong and I left out WA dst as I dont know what it is. Here is the file below:

You need to put that file into the html directory (make it if it does not exist). After changing the file or loading it there the PBX service must be restarted...

 

What I have noticed is that when you do this there is a blank drop down list and you have to look at your config file to see what timezone you are using. Usually it will default to whatever timezone you are in but not always.
