Mononchrome Madness ~ Week 19

I’m participating in Monochrome Madness again this week πŸ™‚

Scheyville National Park


This old building stands as part the Scheyville National Park Camp Precinct near the outskirts of Sydney NSW.

I’ve been to this place twice so far, but I must go back again.Β  It has so much history.

“Throughout the twentieth century, the buildings and public spaces of Scheyville played host to many different people, groups and projects: a socialist labour settlement; the Dreadnought Trust’s training scheme for young British men; and farm training for Australian city boys. Scheyville even functioned for a time as a military camp and later the largest immigration hostel in Australia, this history is detailed through the Migrant Heritage walk.”

My posts may be a little more sporadic in the next while due to a back injury that keeps asserting itself.Β  I am here, but my movements are limited.Β  All is well πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks heaps Cybele πŸ™‚
      I liked the sepia too… Glad you did. I felt that it was very cold without…and yes perhaps a bit spooky…lol


    1. Thanks Lisa… I love the light and textures too. It really is an interesting place.
      Thought I had seen most of it, but apparently theres more.
      Will look forward to visiting again another time. Glad you clicked πŸ™‚


  1. Hope you get better soon, my friend! In regard to the photo, you are at the top of your form! Best wishes and take care! πŸ™‚


    1. Thanks so much Fabio πŸ™‚ Taking it very slowly at present and hoping to move forward soon. Another greatly appreciated comment. Thanks so much!!


  2. My friends and I used to ride our horses on tracks outside the fence of Scheyville “army” camp 35 years ago. It’s in a beautiful area.


    1. Ah yes Rob, I wasn’t surprised you said that.. Being horsey and in the area.
      As far as I know its still a great place for riding, although I think you’re allowed inside these days. Its still beautiful and remains presently untouched.


    1. Hi Robert πŸ™‚ I think that is one of the things I like most about this old place.
      So much texture and character! Glad you like the warm tones too. In reality, this old building was once a pale green paint? ..although much of it has peeled over time.


      1. Ive been away for 3 weeks, so taking advantage of a less harsh climate.
        In my usual abode today and weather is inclement with wind, rain and occasional snow…lol Can see the sun here and there!
        Casting an eagle eye around ‘inside’ to see what I can see. Being out and about is a part of my daily doings. Feeling like a chicken in a coop today.. ha ha
        Thought you’d know ‘that’ green πŸ™‚
