The history of the 8/7 RAR has its roots as far back at the Ballarat Rifle Regiment and the Bendigo Rifle Regiment, both formed in 1858.
In the following 150 years, the citizen forces of both cities have seen numerous changes and, in the case of Bendigo, changes in Army Corps. Through the years, Ballarat has maintained an infantry presence.
