Bushfires are burning out of control on Australia's east coast, with a state of emergency being declared in New South Wales.

Bushfires are common in Australia's hot, dry summers but the current outbreak, well before the summer peak, has caught many by surprise.

"Everybody has to be on alert no matter where you are and everybody has to be assume the worst and we can not allow complacency to creep in", NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian told reporters in Sydney.

Sydney is expecting temperatures of 37 degrees with strong northwesterly winds ahead of a gusty southerly change. It is the first time the city has been rated at that level since new fire danger ratings were introduced in 2009.

"Tomorrow is about protecting life, protecting property and ensuring everybody is as safe as possible", Berejiklian said. Authorities have banned outdoor fires in some parts of the state.

The series is filmed in a dense forest near to Murwillumbah, a town in far-north eastern New South Wales, close to the Queensland border.

The card was rolled out earlier this year. "It's not a gender-discrimination intent but it is a gender-discrimination outcome". Mr Hansson said Goldman's response does not explain what happened after he started airing his issues on social media.


Producers have reassured fans that the show will indeed go on, but that they are closely in contact with the New South Wales fire brigades should the camp need to evacuate.

It's been announced that 300 schools in Sydney and across the state will be closed on Tuesday November 12, including Hornsby Heights Public School, Balgowlah North Public School, Ku-ring-gai High School, Lindfield Learning Village and Berowra Public School.

Authorities are warning high winds that have been forecast will impact the country's largest city and could also spread the flames even faster.

Bushfires are common in Australia but the country has experienced a dramatic start to what scientists predict will be a tough fire season - with climate change and weather cycles contributing to the unsafe combination of strong winds, high temperatures and dry conditions.

Fires since Friday have claimed the lives of three people and destroyed at least 150 homes.

Defence Minister Linda Reynolds has said ADF personnel were not trained firefighters but they would be on standby to provide other support if needed. Following the alarm, which will be played hourly until 7pm tonight, an announcement will be broadcast about the catastrophic bushfire danger.

During a briefing from firefighters on Sunday, a protester yelled at the prime minister, "Climate change is real, can't you see?" We want to tell you that Australia always deals with this bushfire season and it always occurs but this time it occurs before the season.
