I live in Florida, and I was wondering what the time difference is between here and Australia. Thanks for your help in advance. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

I might be wrong on this, but if I remember correctly the time difference for me during when the Austrlian Open was being played last year, was 16 hours.

I am likely in the same time zone as you.

Well it depends on which part of Australia you want.I'm pretty sure that from:

Florida to the east coast for example Perth is 13 hours

Florida to the central time zone for example Adeliede is 14&1/2 hours

Florida to west Australia where Melbourne or Sydney are is 15 hours

Hope this helps! <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

This week (Gold Coast) is 15 hours, but next week (Sydney) is 16 hours, coz daylight saving time in Sydney

Am I correct that Eastern Standard Time is 16 hours from Melbourne, though?

Thats what I had it figured to be last year.

Thanks, everyone. I was just wondering so I wouldn't be up all night looking for scores when they're not going to play until the next day!

Justin is correct (and Becca is,too). It's summertime in Sydney; so it is currently observing Daylight Savings Time. Therefore it's 16 hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time.
