Bushfires raged across Australia's most populous state, fanned by intense heat and high winds in "catastrophic" conditions which have forced hasty evacuations and are threatening homes.

Authorities have warned that an out-of-control grass fire was encroaching properties in Brogo, about 160 kilometres south of the national capital Canberra, and also in the Kybeyan Valley in southern New South Wales.
