"The good thing about when it rains or the wet season starts is after a couple of days of rain, it cools the rock down," Mr Cavanagh said.

"But if it doesn't rain, the rock seems to go up half a degree every day, and you're just living in a big oven."

"Wyndham is surrounded by hills, so the heat tends to get trapped in there."

Swimming to cool off is not always the best option, as there are crocodiles in the nearby waterhole and pools offer little relief.

"The water up here is like swimming in pea soup. It's hot, it's thick and it doesn't cool you down until you get out and stand in a breeze," Ms Shepard said.

Whatever little respite the town's pool may offer, this has been off the cards for many in recent days. Only last week, the town's swimming pool was shut for repairs after being vandalised.

Locals said that would not be too much of a problem because they were now heading into the dry season and it was starting to cool down.

Of course, by "cool down", they mean the temperature is hovering in the low to mid-30s.

Ms Shepard herself now lives in the east Kimberley town of Kununurra, just an hour's drive away, where it is a little cooler.

"When I go over [to Wyndham] now it nearly kills me. The heat does get to everybody there," she said.
