A 70-year-old man was rescued from the depths of Cocoparra National Park on Sunday.
Paramedics were first called at 12.49pm, with the initial call for a man who had fallen down near the Woolshed Flat camping area.
NSW Ambulance Inspector Markus Zarins said the man was located around two kilometres north-east of the camping area, at a location called the Wooldshed Bluff.
Joining paramedics in the rescue effort were NSW State Emergency Service and NSW Rural Fire Service volunteers.
Inspector Zarins said the man was located off the track through difficult terrain, and a rapid access team made contact with the patient at 3.40pm.
The patient is believed to have been climbing up a steep hill when he fell, landing on his right-hand side, suffering a suspected dislocated shoulder and fractured arm.
The difficulty of the terrain meant a rescue helicopter was dispatched from Wollongong to winch the patient to safety, with the other alternative for rescue personnel to spend the night with the patient before walking out on Monday.
Inspector Zarins said the 70-year-old man was in a party of six hikers who regularly walk around Cocoparra National Park, and they were well-prepared and brought their own communication equipment.
The man in a stable condition and was taken by helicopter to Wagga Base Hospital at 5.30pm.
Meanwhile, paramedics were called to a location near Gogeldrie Weir after a motorcyclist had an accident.
A 45-year-old man crashed when riding alongside a channel before hitting a side channel.
Paramedics were called at 11.30am on Sunday.
The man suffered multiple chest injuries and fractures and suspect internal injuries.
He was taken in a serious, but stable condition to Griffith Base Hospital, before later being flown to St George Hospital in Sydney.
