FOR the past three decades, the Tamworth Friendship Force has been welcoming international visitors in to their homes.
The group celebrated its 30th anniversary over the weekend at the Playhouse Hotel in Barraba, with dozens of members both past and present.
The non-profit organisation hosts guests in the homes for a week, to let them experience the local way of life.
Over the years the club has hosted groups from Brazil, Canada, Chile, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Poland and Russia. In return, they've travelled to those countries and more.
They most recently hosted a group from Utah, USA, getting them up close and personal with some native wildlife at the Marsupial Park.
The group also organises trips with other Australian clubs.
