WITH the extreme heatwave hitting the North Burnett, the swimming pool is a good option to cool down and residents are making the most of it.

For Jo Kassulke, Caitlin Wagner and Emma Whelan of Mundubbera, it's the best place to be.

Caitlin said she loved going for a swim.

"I wouldn't be anywhere else but here,” she said.

"During this heat it's either the swimming pool or staying in the air-conditioning.”

Temperatures are expected to stick around the 39 degrees until Friday before easing off.

Mundubbera swim coach Roslin Mason said there hadn't been an increase in swimmers this week.

"A lot of people would rather stay indoors instead of going out for a swim,” Ms Mason said.

A concern that lingers this weekend is heatstroke among seniors.

National Seniors chief advocate Ian Henschke called on residents to look out for elderly family members, friends and neighbours.

"Frail older people are among the most vulnerable when it comes to enduring heat,” he said.

"Find a few minutes to drop in just to make sure they have their home well-ventilated and they are wearing appropriate loose, light clothing, and drinking enough water.”
