Capella is a small town in Central Highlands, Queensland midway between Emerald and Clermont on the Gregory Highway.

It was founded in the late 1860s by graziers influenced by the good reports of Ludwig Leichhardt.

Today, it is a service town catering to the large coal-mining interests in the area as well as pastoralists.

Sport is a very big part of the town, especially Rugby League and Union. The Capella Cattledogs rugby union team made it to the grand final in 2007 against the Clermont Bushpigs.

The Capella tribute to the Light Horse is indeed compelling architectural work.and the War Memorial is near the park

The Capella Hotel is of the modern era.

The Anglican and Catholic churches are structures from different periods.

Time for a cuppa or refreshment stop over.
