A strong southerly front overnight has caused worsening conditions for firefighters battling "volatile" conditions in NSW, with high winds sparking 300 new fire fronts and destroying more properties.

Strong winds have pushed the fire at Hillville, in northern NSW near Taree, in a north-westerly direction, along with blazes in other regions, as fires destroyed hundreds of thousands of hectares of bush.


About a dozen homes were damaged or destroyed in fires on Tuesday, as parts of the state endured a "catastrophic" fire danger.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has said Australia is on track to meet and beat its emission reduction commitments.
