"WomDomNom" is a fully supported organised four day 155km paddle starting from Wellington on Thursday 25 November 2021. It travels through Dubbo and onto Narromine over 4 days.
It is designed to be a recreational paddle, with an emphasis to encourage paddling on the Macquarie River. It is a fully supported paddle, with your camping equipment transported between camping spots. All meals and soft drinks are provided over the 4 days, and you will be on the water for roughly 6 hours per day.
This event is recommended for experienced kayakers. It involves long distances and river hazards and pre event training is advised. This event is not recommended for beginners, as basic paddle skills are essential and fitness and stamina are required. Must be able paddle at a speed of 6km per hour.
Why "WomDomNom"? It stands for Wellington on Macquarie (Wom), Dubbo on Macquarie (Dom), Narromine on Macquarie (Nom)!
The paddle costs are $80 per day, so $320 for the four (4) days.
