The NSW Police Force renewed their warnings for any would-be lockdown dodgers trying to escape from Sydney to the Central Coast and Hunter region, telling them to forget about it.

65 people in New South Wales copped fines for violating the state's public health order in the space of 24 hours.

One of those, a woman from Sydney, had fled lockdown to travel to Port Stephens.

Police gave the 26-year-old her marching orders and a $1,000 fine on Tuesday after catching her in the carpark of a Nelson Bay hotel.

Deputy Police Commissioner, Gary Worboys, said the rules couldn’t be any clearer.

“The message is quite clear that police continue to be visible in the community… It’s just disappointing that infringements continue to be issued.”

While police were disappointed with the people travelling to and through the Central Coast, they had nothing but praise for the local community, praising them for their adherence to the temporary regulations.

The lockdown, which came into effect on June 26th, was scheduled to end next Friday, July 9th.
