Boats rescue people from NSW bushfire

Been watching the big bushfire develop in the Royal National Park Sydney

The Sydney's south, firefighters are now battling an out-of-control blaze in the Royal National Park.

Much of NSW is bracing for sweltering temperatures with the NSW Rural Fire Service warning of increased fire danger and authorities warning residents in Sydney's west to be wary of poor air quality.

Meanwhile, aircraft water-bombers tried to slow the fire.

The RFS has also advised that nearby beaches may offer safety.

"Ozone levels are higher outdoors than indoors, so limiting time outside during the heat of the day and especially in the evening would help people to keep cool and limit their exposure to ozone pollution", NSW Health Medical Advisor Dr Adi Vyas said in a statement.

Given the limited mobile coverage in the Royal National Park, Mr Morris said many people in the bushland were "unlikely" to have received emergency text warnings.

Firefighters worked through the night to extinguish one of those blazes with the second fire now being brought under control.

Firefighters in the state of New South Wales issued an emergency warning to visitors in the Royal National Park as the blaze threatened the main access road to a popular tourist spot called Wedding Cake Rock where people posted pictures of the billowing smoke to social media.

Further south, near Bowral, rural properties in the Alders and Crees Road areas in Bannaby may come under threat from a grassfire, the NSW Rural Fire Service says.

A watch and act alert has also been issued north of Tamworth, where there's an out of control 3500-hectare fire.

With the park closed, it's causing significant traffic around the Engadine area.
