Daylight savings has ended for New Zealand with clocks going back at 3am on Saturday night.

According to the New Zealand government website, the reason for changing the time over the summer months is that more sunlight hours come in the early morning if we kept the same time all year-round.

In summer, these early morning sunlight hours are seen as being wasted as many people are asleep at that time. If the sunlight hours are shifted to the evening, by way of daylight saving time, they are more useful.

New Zealand first introduced daylight saving time in 1927.

Daylight savings is also a reminder for New Zealanders to check their fire alarms and ensure they are in working order.
