UTC+08:45 is used as a time in Australia (Central Western Time, or CWT). It is used by some roadhouses along the Eyre Highway in Western Australia and South Australia. Although not legally defined by the state or federal governments,[1] the boundaries where it commences and ends are clearly understood and recognised by the Shire of Dundas local government[2] and are frequently shown on road maps of the area. Road signs at the western end of the time zone on the Eyre Highway advise travellers to reset their clocks by 45 minutes.[3]

UTC+08:45 is used in five places in Australia, including Border Village in South Australia, as well as Cocklebiddy, Eucla, Madura and Mundrabilla in Western Australia. It runs from just east of the South Australian border to shortly east of Caiguna. It is included in the tz database with designator Australia/Eucla.
