Locals are making the most of their time outside before temperatures soar.
Cafes have been packed and the city’s parks are bustling as many enjoy the festive break.
The Northern Daily Leader photographers have been out and about over the past few days snapping locals enjoying their time away from work and school.
Earlier this week, Peter Hardin popped past Tamworth Regional Playground to snap families having a ball before Gareth Gardner swung past the playground again on Wednesday.
Also on Wednesday, Gareth went out to Quirindi for the races before heading to Chaffey Dam on Thursday as locals beat the heat.
