St Albans Hockey Club are used to welcoming touring sides to their Oaklands base but not many of them have travelled from as far as the latest group.
The Australian Wanderers brought three junior teams over to play the hosts, U16 and U18 girls and U17 boys.
They are a sports tour company with the young people coming from all over Australia, meeting up for the first time in Singapore.
They have been touring England with the next stop Holland as part of a 19-day trip.
The 40 young people were all hosted by families from the St Albans club and were able to sample the sights and life of the city.
