Scheyville (pronounced 'Sky-ville') is a suburb of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Scheyville is located 54 kilometres north-west of the Sydney central business district in the local government area of the City of Hawkesbury.

Military history[edit]

From 1965 to 1973, Scheyville was the site of Officer Training Unit, Scheyville (OTU Scheyville), established to provide training to meet the growing need for officers for the new conscripts called up for service under the national service scheme.

Parks[edit]

In 1997 large tracts of land in the area were dedicated as the Scheyville National Park. The area is named after the former Member of the New South Wales Parliament William Schey.
