Bordering on Madness

The New South Wales, Queensland state border is an unusual delineation. At Wallangarra the state border crosses through the railway station platform. At bustling Tweed Heads, NSW in the Summer Time you will find that you can put half of your body in a different time zone as its twin town of Coolangatta is in Queensland and doesn’t partake in Australian Eastern Summer Time, thus it remains an hour behind the rest of the eastern states for nearly half the year.

Alcohol isn’t sold in supermarkets in Qld but it is in NSW, so for convenience sake you can duck over the border to pick up your supplies but are you saving time or losing it?
