TimeSpan.TryParse(datewise + ":" + "00", out _timeOfDay);
                var asd = _dt.ToString().Split(new string[] { " " }, StringSplitOptions.None);
                var _newdatetime = asd[0] + " " + _timeOfDay;
                DateTime oldTime = Convert.ToDateTime(_newdatetime);
                TimeZoneInfo timeZone1 = TimeZoneInfo.FindSystemTimeZoneById("AUS Eastern Standard Time");
                TimeZoneInfo timeZone2 = TimeZoneInfo.FindSystemTimeZoneById(TimeZoneInfo.Local.Id);
                DateTime newTime = TimeZoneInfo.ConvertTime(oldTime, timeZone1, timeZone2);
                DateTime new_Time = TimeZoneInfo.ConvertTimeFromUtc(oldTime, timeZone2);
                TimeSpan timeOfDay = new TimeSpan();
                TimeSpan.TryParse(newTime.ToString(), out  timeOfDay);

                new DateTime(newTime.Ticks).ToString("H tt");
                new DateTime(new_Time.Ticks).ToString("H tt");

You should first convert the date, time to unix time in seconds adjusting for time son to GMT, Utc time. You can then convert back in a much simpler, straight forward way way.

Storing date time in at least GMT, Utc time zone makes transition simpler requiring adjustments by the time zone only. Storing using unix time stamp make the conversion a mathematical function of adding or subtracting the tz value.
