Victoria, NSW, South Australia, Tasmania and the ACT will mark the end of daylight saving on Sunday.

For those who rely on their phones to tell the time, you shouldn't need to do anything as it will likely update for you.

But for those with analogue clocks, you'll need to shift clocks back an hour.

This also generally applies to clocks in cars, microwaves, ovens and alarm clocks.
