We found Capella Pioneer Village very educational and a walk back in time! The buildings and interior spaces are very well maintained! There are a huge amount of furniture and every day items from machinery to toys and every day items from years gone by! A truly enjoyable experience and very well set up with plenty of information available! Would definitely recommend visiting this Village it is a credit to the volunteers that look after it!

Everything in central Queensland is " off the beaten track", but Capella is a neat little town where you can find a bank, have a coffee and see a well presented glimpse of late 19th century life. There is a resited homestead, complete with full set up, of furnishings and decor, outbuildings, a selection of amazingly restored and maintained machinery and a shearing shed. There is an array or drays, waggons and other wheeled conveyances. The striking thing is the standard of preservation and care. If you are heading out towards Emerald, Rubyvale, Sapphire......make a stop! You will enjoy a step back into the past.

We’ve seen many Pioneer Villages, but this has to be among the best. Our favourite exhibit was a home that was a beautiful example of early pioneer architecture using the ‘Drop-in’ method for the timber in the internal walls - spectacular mantle-pieces, furniture and other memorabilia. Some of the other buildings display a wool shed, old store, railway and farm machinery and an old cinema re-creation amongst a myriad of other displays. All in all, a great few hours in a very well maintained attraction.

I know a lot of these types of places are often staffed by volunteers so there may be times they are just not able to open but the gates were padlocked, the grass overgrown and the sign indicated no open hours anymore and just closed, I would imagine permanently. Be nice if they indicated why it is closed or when it will reopen.

This site has an extensive collection of historical farm machinery such as tractors, small engines, implements and many other types of machinery. It also has a large display of old movie theatre projectors and other indoor displays. The centerpiece is the c1860s Peak Downs Homestead. This historic house is full of character and beautifully presented, giving visitors an excellent idea of living conditions on a Queensland sheep station in the late 1800s and early 1900s.
