Marko Jovanovic-Jozic, 18, brought his cousin Mary to beat the heat.
“My cousin came from Germany for the warm weather,” Marko said. “She came from -38 degree weather and the experience here has gotten a bit much. I told her if you want to cool off, the best place is the ice arena.”
That may be true, but even the chillers at the Thebarton Ice Arenain Adelaide’s west have been struggling in the heat, and the industrial ice is wet. Still, more than 350 people have come through its doors.

Marko, 18, and his cousin Mary say they came to the Thebarton Ice Arena to beat the heat. Four days ago she flew out from Germany where it was -36, for the warm weather of Australia. Today, it got a bit much. #adelaide #heatwavepic.twitter.com/Q5cHlW3xcg
