Likeable larrikins, Sticks and Wombat are hardworking best mates from the South Coast of NSW. Always with a smile on their dials, Wombat and Sticks are unique characters who love a surf and a yarn with mates. In their 15 years of friendship they’ve done it all and they have the stories (and scars) to prove it. They see The Block as an extension of their adventures and they can’t wait to get stuck in. “We’d normally get up to some pretty stupid things. But not as much anymore, because as you get a bit older, and you have kids, you have to think about things a bit more,” says Wombat. But deciding to do The Block was a no-brainer for them both. “I just said, ‘Should we go on The Block, Wombat?’ And he said, ‘Sure!’ and that’s all it took,” Sticks laughs.
