Australia's most wanted fugitive has revealed how he's avoided police capture for nine years in handwritten notes found at his campsite.

Graham Gene Potter's most notorious crime was the murder of 19-year-old shop assistant Kim Barry, whose head and fingers he cut off after trying to seduce her on his buck's night in 1981.

Having served 15 years for Ms Barry's murder, the 'head and fingers killer' went to work for senior mafia player Paquale Barbaro, after meeting him in jail.

Potter, 61, is now wanted for charges of allegedly conspiring to murder two underworld figures and for his alleged involvement in a 4.4 tonne $440million ecstasy haul.

He has been on the run since February 1, 2010, after failing to appear in court.   

Police have released images from a campsite found in Tully, Queensland, on August 28 the same year - the last time he was seen.

His haul included bottles of lemonade, pasta sauce, rubber shoes, knives and zip tires.

In handwritten letters he discussed the need to get 'theatrical' disguises and a fat suit.

He also threatened to kill anyone who recognised him and highlighted potential employment opportunities. 

Detective Leading Senior Constable Brendan Finn from the Fugitive Taskforce said the release of information served as a reminder Potter is still out there. 

He said he has developed numerous ways of keeping himself under the radar and is known to disguise himself with wigs, changing his hair colour and fat suits.
