I’m installing 5 downlights and 20 x 6W garden spike lights and I haven’t done much timer/ contactor wiring and I was wondering if this diagram was correct.
The lights will only come on from 5:00pm until 10:00pm

Cheers.

looks good to me. maybe add a photo cell to the outside lights, so they only come on when the daylight fades.

I'd go with @telectrix suggestion of adding a photo cell. Not much point in lights coming on when it's still light outside.

Do you actually require the contactor for this setup? Most timer's will be able to handle a lot more load that one you have here, and it appears that everything is on the same circuit.
