7. Ok this is a reader contribution - cover the windows which would receive the most intense sunlight with emergency blankets (those aluminised lightweight sheets). Reflective car sun-shades and plain ol' aluminium foil would work as well.
8. "Boundary cooling". Spray your roof or whichever wall faces the sun with water. This is a technique used on board ships to remove heat from a compartment which is on fire, without actually entering the compartment. It may or may not be super effective, but I suppose that unless there are water restrictions (at last check in December, Victoria's water levels were healthy), it might be worth a try.
It was a technique which I have occasionally attempted in Singapore on the inside (obviously...) walls of our flat's toilet.
