Australian SAS Documentary: The Search For Warriors

They have been concealed from our gaze for decades, known to the public largely for what we don’t know about them.

Now for the first time in 25 years, , a film crew has been given access to the highly secretive selection course for the Australian SAS.

One hundred and thirty candidates from the cream of the Australian military will attempt the brutal 21-day course. It is battle for survival where only the fittest survive. Most who start will never finish.
This is a search for warriors.

The SAS work in foreign territories, including Afghanistan, Iraq and East Timor. Working in counter terrorism, surveillance, peacekeeping, tactical assault and reconnaissance it is essential they remain unidentified in order to be able to work in life-threatening situations. They are the real deal.

The men face crushing physical exercises, extreme psychological tasks, unforgiving hours and conditions, all-weather and terrain challenges, sleep deprivation and 20km marathons (carrying weights) that must be completed in harsh time limits.

Filmed at Campbell Barracks in Swanbourne, Western Australia, this is a rare insight into the early training stages of becoming an Australian SAS trooper. Watch this video, is really worth it!
