The Kings Highway between Nelligen and Braidwood has reopened this afternoon after being closed for almost a week.

Volunteers from the State Emergency Service and Rural Fire Service have been working to clear falling trees and rocks caused by the Currowan fire on the NSW south coast.

Various sections of the Kings Highway have also been closed since the North Black Range Palerang fire a fortnight ago.

Bushfires, back burning and a cleanup operation blocked traffic, and even cut off access to North Batemans Bay via the route.

Araluen Road has also been reopened.
