The footage shows two Holden Commodores doing burnouts in the middle of the empty highway.
The deputy commissioner of NSW Traffic and Highway Patrol Command, Michael Corboy, was stunned by the behavior and said it would not be tolerated.
"This is really a serious reminder to everyone that this type of behavior is not tolerated by us (the police) or the community," he said.
"You will face significant fines, you will lose your car, you will lose your driver's license, and if you were the driver of the vehicle, you would be disqualified for a long time and even end up in prison."

The event was filmed by West End Media and has since been removed from the social media site.
According to the anti-hoon laws contained in the Road Transport Act 2003, the Crimes Act 1900 and the Road Rules 2014, it is also a criminal offense to “organize, encourage, participate in, or photograph someone else, drag Racing or doing burnouts ”.
If you commit the offense repeatedly, the maximum sentence will be imposed if a fine of $ 3,300 and a possible prison sentence of 9 months or both are imposed.
“In certain circumstances, you may be banned from driving for 12 months. You will not be convicted of this crime if you can show that you did not intentionally lose the vehicle in traction, ”the law says.
Both men will stand in front of Campbelltown Court in June.
