This has absolutely nothing to do with ntp. That gives ONLY UTC (Universal
Time Coordinate) Your local time is compeltely up to your operating system.
If you phone gives the wrong time, yell at the phone manufacturer. 
It is entirely possible that they are wrong-- a) you probably bought the
phone a while ago and they did not know at that time that the Australian
politicians would change their minds again. 
b) You probably have not updated the software in the phone. 

Note that some phones get their time signals from the local wireless
provider. Yell at the provider.
