1 RAR is one of the older infantry units in the Australian Army. It is a Battalion comprising over 600 personnel, 100 vehicles and a vast array of weaponry.

1 RAR’s mission is to prepare infantry soldiers and teams to deploy onto operations. To that end, it focuses on developing the battlefield shooting, fitness, drills/techniques of its personnel and teams.

1 RAR’s infantry move to the fight in protected mobility vehicles, helicopters, amphibious vessels and by foot.

1 RAR has an administration and technical element to ensure its infantry soldiers and teams are ready to operate and fight.

The majority of 1 RAR’s soldiers and teams are aged between 18-25 years old. The Battalion, including its infantry, comprises both women and men.

Over the last 12 months, 1 RAR personnel have served in no less than eight countries in the region and beyond.
