Cooler conditions have improved the ability for the local firefighters to tackle the Carrai East fire, which has been burning west of Kempsey for months.
The Carrai East fire is now listed as being controlled.
The bushfire has claimed one life, dozens of homes and has burned through more than 144,000 hectares.
The weather conditions over the next few days are predicted to continue to be favourable for firefighters.
The temperatures are predicted to be in the mid-20s and possible showers are expected.
However, there is a possible thunderstorm on Thursday and while the 1-5mm of rain predicted will be welcomed with open arms, the lightning could prove an issue.
The Carrai East fire was caused by a lightning strike in August.
