I am trying to display two countries time on my website. I have achieved the NZ time ( NZ time: 12:13pm Sunday, 26 May 2013 (NZST) ) but require help to set time for Australia ( AUS time: ). Any suggestions will be appreciated.

AUS is a little trickier than NZ as it has multiple time zones (dam WA which can be 3 - 4 hours behind NZ).

A simple example would be on the model object put a new public function

public function aus_time() {
return date('Y / m / d G:i:s', strtotime('+2 hours'));

in the template call
