Description

The spectacular Peak Range creates a dramatic backdrop to Capella. Make Capella your base while exploring the Central Highlands.

The 'Peak Downs' Homestead is Australia's largest restored shingle roofed station homestead. Built in 1869 from local pit sawn spotted gum, the Homestead is a tribute to 19th century carpentry. The wall wood slats are cut on a 12 degree angle top and bottom and mortised into the square studs. The Homestead is in the Capella Pioneer Village complex at the northern end of Capella's main street.

The village is also home to the 'Gordon Downs' Woolshed and a comprehensive collection of tractors and machinery used to open up the Central Highlands grain industry following World War Two.

Unwind and enjoy their local 'beach'. The Capella Aquatic Centre's five free electric barbecue areas are near the wading pool, plunge pool, shallow pool and the Olympic pool. Pull up a sun lounger and relax with a coffee from the Centre's cafe.

Discover the volcanic mountain peaks, huge coal mining activities, fascinating sapphire fields and broadacre farming panoramas along the four self-drive tours. Don't miss the light pole and wall murals along the Peak Downs Street town walk, or take a bird-watching tramp east along Capella Creek.
