Hot days deserve a cool dip, and that’s what plenty of locals and visitors have been doing over the festive season.
McLean Beach was packed on New Year’s Day as the temperature rose to 33°C, despite the day being overcast.
Families packed their sun shades and marquees along with their swimmers and ski gear for a day at the beach.
Among them were Victorian youngsters Kayle and Shanae Gallager from Craigieburn and Catherine Bowden and Emily Lunt of Wallan (pictured from left), who said they have spent most of their two week stay in Deniliquin on the river.
‘‘We like the boats and the tubing,’’ Kayle told the Pastoral Times on Wednesday.
‘‘We’ve been down here (McLean Beach) nearly every day.’’
The families are regular visitors to Deniliquin, and are not the only ones who have chosen Deniliquin to see in the New Year.
