I am very familiar with the S.E Barrington tops region.
I also have some familiarity with the forest region that police are hunting Naden now.
In this area, there is an abundance of pigs, deer, roos, rabbits and trout.
The forest trees and plants have much bush tucker if you know.
This region is incredibly rugged and perfect for avoiding capture imo
The state forests run in a continuous unbroken strip from Barringtons to Coffs, apart from a couple of kilometres where you have to cross Thunderbolts Way.

Naden must have supreme bush skills.
I do not think they will be able to track him, as he can use the river valleys. If he is as well prepared as it seems, he will have had his escape route planned
Also, from talking to some people that live up in the isolated areas around Nowendoc and Nundle, there is an awful lot of "hillbillies" up there, who have no love whatsover for the law.
The local marijuana growers will be really annoyed.
Some of the guys I know that go pig-shooting up there, are serious hardnuts.
With a $250k reward, I think these "bounty-hunters" will be his biggest worry
