The Australian Bureau of Meteorology has released its latest temperature report.
The bureau says it has been measuring the temperature of the platinum in various parts of the country for more than 20 years.
The temperature was measured at 12:59:08 on Friday, which is the time when platinum melts at around 25C.
It’s not the hottest platinum ever measured in Australia, which was measured back in 2003.
