Fugitive killer Graham Potter has been spotted in NSW after seven years on the run.

A convicted killer who has spent seven years on the run after being bailed on conspiracy to murder two underworld figures in Victoria has been spotted in NSW.

Graham Gene Potter, 59, has been sighted in the regional town of Griffith, with police calling for information on the man who has been described as Australia's most wanted fugitive.

Potter is one of three men charged over the alleged planned murders of two men, including an associate of underworld figure Mick Gatto, related to disputes within a drug syndicate.

He is still wanted on federal drug charges for a record 4.4 tonne ecstasy haul, which involved 15 million ecstasy tablets being smuggled in tinned tomatoes in 2008.

Potter was jailed after he murdered and decapitated a woman on his bucks night in 1981.

Victoria Police was previously told Potter was living in Griffith in 2016, but when those leads were investigated they came to nothing.

Police received the latest information through Crime Stoppers and are urging the caller to make contact again.

Potter is described as caucasian, 175cm tall, of a medium to strong build, with a fair complexion, brown eyes, brown greying hair and a ginger beard.

He is known to wear gold sleeper earrings in both ears, glasses and a gold neck chain.

Police have warned anyone who sees Potter not to approach him but to call Triple Zero immediately.
