Save my wine!

What is the best way to store wine long term if I don't have a cellar? I'm particularly worried about the Australian summer coming in six months or so.

At the moment I have four dozen or so bottles in my wardrobe. I open it every day, and there's next to no insulation in there. I'm pretty sure it's a bad place to keep good wine. Most of the bottles are nice but nothing super premium, but there are a few that I want to keep for ten years or more, and one muscat that should get better and better for 20-30 years.
What should I do with them? Buying a $200 wine fridge thing is out of the question. I want to find the best way of keeping them in a normal house sort of situation. I don't have a cellar. I've been reading about heat damage and it's starting to scare me. All help is appreciated!
PS- anyone in South Australia: go to Kabminye vineyard in the Barossa, and buy a bottle of Gold. It's the muscat I'm talking about. I guarantee it will be the single greatest thing you will ever taste.
