Fitzroy Crossing sweats through Australia's hottest OctoberFriday November 1, 2013 - 15:05 EDT
Fitzroy Crossing has broken the record for Australia's hottest October.
The record was set in 2002 when the Kimberley community averaged a maximum of 41.9 degrees for every day in October.
This October the average has been 42 degrees.
The pool manager at the Fitzroy Aquatic Centre, Aaron Jacobs, says there are more than 90 people a day using the swimming pool to try to escape the heat.
"Oh it's relentless, you don't really get too much of a chance to cool off," he said.
"I mean your minimums get down to say 26, so you know six o'clock in the morning you walk out and it's still quite warm."
