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.
In 1997 large tracts of land in the area were dedicated as the Scheyville National Park. The area is named after William Schey, MLA, the Member for Redfern and later Darlington between 1887 and 1898.
