District wildlife sought out whatever water it could find during last week's extreme temperatures.

Last week was the tail end of a heatwave which had broken records in parts of Victoria, according to the Bureau of Meteorology.

"Since about early to mid-January, we've had an extraordinary run of heat across the state," BOM duty forecaster Phil King said.

But the weekend's cool change was likely here to stay, Mr King said last week.

"It's the first time we will see the slow erosion of the pool of heat we've seen collecting in the middle of the continent," he said.

"(It is the) first sign we're on the back end of record-breaking heat."
