A man accused of slashing two women with a machete at a NSW caravan park drove away from the scene of the attack, crashing his car a short time later.

Clint Baker, 31, was arrested on Monday night after he allegedly attacked 25-year-old Caitlyn Grayson and 37-year-old Susan Baker at Lake Conjola on the state's south coast, court documents show.

Baker did not appear at Sutherland Local Court on Wednesday and the matter was adjourned.

Court documents show there was no application for bail and it was formally refused.

A police statement says Ms Grayson suffered cuts to her buttocks, legs, arms and head, while Ms Baker had wounds to her head and hands.

The women were taken to hospital for treatment.

After the attack police chased Baker, who had driven off along the Princes Highway.

Within 20 minutes police found he had crashed into a tree on the side of the highway.

Police laid charges in a bedside hearing at St George Hospital where Baker had been taken to recover from internal injuries.

He's due to face court again on June 15 on charges including contravening a domestic apprehended violence order (AVO), wounding a person with intent to murder and dangerous driving.
