Find local time and time zone for a location

We recommend looking up by location name, not time zone name.

Time zone offset: UTC + 12 hours

NZST is 12 hours ahead of Coordinated Universal Time (UTC)

Note that during summer daylight saving time/summer time is observed, and NZDT is used instead.

Time zone abbreviation: NZST

Full name is New Zealand Standard Time

Email time zone indicator: +1200

An email sent from someone in the NZST time zone will have the time zone listed as "+1200" in the headers of the email. (However, "+1200" does not have to be in NZST, as other time zones could have the same UTC offset).

For actual dates DST might be observed, look at the examples below
