It may be cold in the Northern Hemisphere, but Australia is burning up like genitals at the free clinic. No, seriously. The island nation of former criminals and outcasts has been experiencing record high temperatures during its summer'a development that is particularly dangerous for the country's women, who were already hot to death (R.I.P. everyone who has actually died as a result of the heat wave).
While Aussies endure the heat, Complex fans the flames of brushfires with a countdown of the hottest women in the land Down Under. We're talking women who make us wanna throw a JUMBO shrimp on the barbie. Women who make us ask, "G'day. Mate?" Women who...OK, just look at the pics already...

#9. NATALIE MENDOZA
Claim to fame: The Descent, a gore-fest about women on a caving expedition who get trapped underground and end up in a bloody fight for survival against mole-men. We're pretty sure it's the first movie ever made about the horrors of synchronized menstrual cycles.
#8. EMILY SCOTT
Claim to fame: It's definitely not that she married Ritchie Neville, a former member of the boyband Five, so we're gonna say its 'cause she gets naked a lot as a swimwear and lingerie model.
#7. HOLLY VALANCE
Claim to fame: This actress and singer is distantly related to the late British comedian Benny Hill, who no doubt stripped her half-naked and chased her around in double-speed to the delightfully hilarious sounds of "Yakety Sax."
#5. KRYSTAL FORSCUTT
Claim to fame: She was a contestant on Big Brother Australia 2006, which was a massive hit with kangaroos and wombats. Also, her surname sounds like Atlanta slang for non-consensual penetration.

#1. JESSICA GOMES
Claim to fame: The November 2007 cover of Complex. Since then it's all been downhill. To pay the bills Gomes has had to resort to taking it all off for Sports Illustrated's 2008 Swimsuit Issue. Tragic.
