With the temperatures rising last week, people of all ages decided to hit the water to try and cool down.

Early in the week, many people headed to Altona beach, making the most of the open space.

Others headed to pools like Sunshine Leisure Centre, Melton Waves and the Sunbury Aquatic and Leisure Centre outdoor pool.

The pools had plenty of activities for children, and parents could either join in or watch from the sidelines. The pools were also popular places for teenagers to catch up with their mates.

Others took their love for the water a bit further and headed to Funfields Themepark in Whittlesea for a day out.

As well as all the slides and water fun, families could enjoy the Mystic Kingdom, thrill rides, go-karts and mini golf.

Star Weekly photographer Damjan Janevski headed out to capture some of the fun.
