AFIS’ Amazing Race 2.0: Gather a team and race to the finish!

RACE around Melbourne and feel more at home with the city as you and a team of four compete in AFIS’ Amazing Race 2.0. Antonina Mtanu has all the details. 


Join in the fun and race to the finish in the second Amazing Race, hosted by the Australian Federation of International Students’ (AFIS) on July 25.

Local and international students are encouraged to register for the race as it has been designed to help students from overseas feel more at home in the city by giving them a chance to mingle with local students and explore iconic Melbourne locations in a fun and competitive environment.

Functioning in similar fashion to the hugely popular television series of the same name, AFIS’ Amazing Race 2.0 will see teams of four start the race at Federation Square.

From there they move on to various locations around town where they will need to decipher clues and overcome physical challenges in order to progress to the next stage.

A fun way for domestic and international students to enjoy a day out, make friends and see Melbourne in a different light, this event promises to get the blood pumping and students working together.

Registration is only $3 per person but hurry as regisration closes on July, 19 2015. To register, sign up over at AFIS Amazing Race 2.0’s registration form.

Meld Magazine was incorporated as an independent not-for-profit media outlet in September 2008 to reach out to international students in Melbourne, and provide students the opportunity to gain real work experience.

Many international students live in or around the city because of the proximity to their colleges and universities, and that was where we decided to focus our efforts first. Many of us live, work and study locally too. Our editorial team is made of both local and international students, and it has worked to our advantage in providing local content in every sense of the word.
