Two Sydney men who were sunbathing naked before being startled by a deer had to be rescued from bushland at Otford on Sunday.
They were also issued $1000 fines for breaching the current public health order.
The two men were among 44 people throughout NSW issued with Penalty Infringement Notices for breaching a public health order on the weekend, after they had to be rescued from the Royal National Park at Otford.
About 6pm on Sunday, the men called for assistance after becoming lost in bushland during a visit to a remote beach.
The men were from Camperdown and Mascot.
Police Rescue assisted by the State Emergency Service, NSW Ambulance and Polair responded to the area, locating a 30-year-old man naked and carrying a backpack on the walking track near Lady Wakehurst Drive.
After a further search, a 49-year-old man, partially clothed, was also located.
The men told police they were on a nearby beach when they ran into bushland after being startled by a deer.
They were taken to St George Police Station and issued $1000 PINs for breaching the current public health order prohibiting those from Greater Sydney travelling outside the region.
