    Really feel for folks in those areas of SA and NSW where they've been copping 45+ degrees.

The closer to the poles, the bigger the change. This is also why the winter days are so short down where you are.
    As most of QLD is in the the tropical area all we will get with DLS is an extra hour of stinking hot in the afternoon and tradies etc starting before daylight.

    Nowhere on earth is there DLS in places that are in the torrid zone. Look at a map and see exactly where the equator and tropics are.
    If you were to take the top half of the world and turn it upside down USA would be south of Sydney, Europe would be south of Melbourne and pommyland would be about half way between Hobart and Antarctica.
