The small tourist town of Te Anau has decided to move into daylight saving forever.
This Saturday night, when the country moves into daylight saving time, Te Anau will be there for good.
The Fiordland town has a population of just 2760.
The town say the new time zone will give visitors an extra hour to see their sights and attractions – especially the Milford and Doubtful Sounds.
New Zealand first introduced daylight saving time in 1927. However, the modern era began in 1974/75 when a trial of putting time forward in summer was made permanent.
The rationale for changing the time over the summer months is so early morning sunlight hours are not wasted and the evenings are longer and more useful.
A 2008 survey found that 82% of Kiwis now approved of daylight saving.
