Snacks, hand warmers, a thank-you cake, firewood and a fire drum have been given to NSW police officers in the past week as they oversee the border closure with Victoria.
NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller thanked community members for the "nothing short of sensational" hospitality demonstrated through gifts delivered to the various checkpoints.
"Some of which are in very remote locations with not much infrastructure around them," he said.
"I would like to send my heartfelt thanks to these wonderful locals who are there for our cops during this time."
Sydney officers deployed at Lake Hume said they were "blown away by the patience, thoughtfulness and generosity of the local Albury and Wodonga communities".
Food and hand warmers were waiting when they arrived on Wednesday and a fire drum and wood was brought down by day two.
