NSW bushfires: Fighting the fire monster in Termeil, South Durras, Bawley Point, Lake Tabourie

The Rural Fire Service has on Saturday afternoon upgraded the Currowan Fire, burning north of Batemans Bay, to Watch and Act. The fire has burnt more than 70,000 hectares and is not yet under control.

Homes have been lost, as have all manner of structures but until it's safe for RFS Building Assessment teams to access affected areas full details remain unconfirmed.

This may take a moment to load. Please wait, we promise it will be worth it.

The Princes Highway is now closed between Dolphin Point and North Batemans Bay turnoff. Local road closures are also in place including Wheelbarrow Road and Woodburn Road. Access may be available for local residents at the discretion of emergency services.
