Emergency services were called to the aid of two sightseers who became stuck during a walk down a cliff face at Denhams Beach at the weekend.
Moruya SES unit controller Jeff McMahon said a male and female, believed to be aged in their 40s, got into difficulty while attempting to make their way back up the steep terrain in Barbara Crescent just before 9am on Sunday, June 10.
Mr McMahon said one of the walkers became stuck halfway, while the other came into trouble with a rising tide at the base of the cliff.
Moruya SES volunteers, with the aid of Batemans Bay Fire and Rescue, conducted a vertical rescue, hauling the walkers to safety by midday.
He said the rescue required the efforts of eight SES personnel, with NSW Ambulance, police and the Westpac Life Saver 23 helicopter also called to the scene.
No one was injured in the incident.
Mr McMahon said the rescue was an example of excellent cooperation between the services involved.
