Three separate crashes in NSW and Victoria have pushed the country’s national holiday road toll to 25.

A female driver was killed when two cars collided head-on in Whittingham, northwest of Newcastle yesterday afternoon.

Hours later, a 28-year-old motorcyclist died after hitting a tree in Matraville.

While in Melbourne two people were killed after their car slammed into a tree and burst into flames.

The Northern Territory is the only state or territory not to have recorded any road deaths during the holiday toll period, which began last Wednesday.

The national road toll period runs from 0001 December 23, 2015 to 2359 January 3, 2016 local times
