This week, many parts of southern Australia have been experiencing an intense heatwave, with temperatures soaring to 46C.
The baking heat has encouraged many to take to the beach and soak up the rays.
While others have been ensuring Australia's flora and fauna survive the weather.
Players and fans at the Australian Open tennis tournament did their best to keep cool.
But the heat has brought with it raging bush fires, which have already destroyed homes and buildings in the region.
Transport networks and power supplies have also been disrupted, keeping people away from the cities.
