Why does my streak reset at 1pm?

I just started this account. The accounts attached, both duo and google, are of australian origin in every way possible, and yet Duo assigns me a terrible streak ending time? Why is this? Is this website only designed for people in Northern Hemisphere?

It could be due to Daylight Saving Time. Duolingo doesn't always correct the time correctly for this outside the US.

The day streak should reset at midnight in the time zone in which you started your account. But the week streak resets earlier, I believe at midnight GMT.
