Scheyville National Park

National Parks and Reserves

Some national parks are about more than just the natural environment; they’re about us. Scheyville is one of those parks.

This gem of a park also has a rich and surprising cultural history that touches more than a quarter of a million Australians. Within its current boundaries, a visitor will find the remnants of everything from a cooperative farm to a famous migrant camp. For many, this was the first stop on their journey to becoming an Australian. You might be a descendant of a Dreadnought Boy or of somebody who trained here to fight in the Vietnam War. Indeed, the cultural significance of the park is so wide-reaching that it has been placed on the NSW State Heritage Register.

Spend a morning birdwatching or wandering the grasslands on your own horse, then explore the ruined and restored buildings clustered in the southern precinct of the park. Visiting Scheyville is a varied experience, uniting the best of the natural world with the history of the social world.
