The Deniliquin Swim Centre and the Edward River provided much needed relief for many locals this week.
The mercury climbed to over 44°C, forcing people to find options to beat the heat.
Pictured are local girls Lauren Gittens and Jade Trencher who were excited to hit the pool at the Deniliquin Swim Centre on Wednesday.
They were quite happy to plunge into the cool waters of the pool for this action shot in an attempt to keep cool along with fellow swimmers.
While it’s not yet the hottest summer experienced in Deniliquin, the heat has certainly been testing.
Some shops were closing early during this week’s heat wave, and it seems the shoppers were happy to stay at home too.
The Sydney Morning Herald reports Deniliquin’s top of 44.3°C on Tuesday was the highest recorded temperature in NSW on the day.
Yesterday, the temperature rose to a sweltering 45°C and today will be equally sweaty with a top of 44°C predicted.
